Echoes

By Douglas Malloch

Fine men have walked this way before,
Whatever Lodge your Lodge may be
Whoever stands before the door,
The sacred arch of Masonry,
Stands where the wise, the great, the good,
In their own time and place have stood.

You are not Brother just with these,
Your friends and neighbors you are kin
With Masons down the centuries
This room that now you enter in
Has felt the trod of many feet,
For here all Masonry you meet.

You walk the path the great have trod,
The great in heart, the great in mind,
Who looked through Masonry to God,
And looked through God to all mankind
Learned more that word or sign or grip,
Learned Man's and God's relationship.

To him who sees, who understands,
How mighty Masonry appears!
A Brotherhood of many lands,
A fellowship of many years,
A Brotherhood so great, so vast,
Of all the Craft of all the past.

And so I say a sacred trust
Is yours to share, is yours to keep
I hear the voice of men of dust,
I hear the step of men asleep
And down the endless future, too,
Your own shall echo after you.
