The Mystic Art

By Sir Edward Bulwer-Lytton

The world may rail at Masonry, 
And scoff at Square and Line, 
We'll follow with complacency 
The Master's great Design. 

A King can make a gartered Knight, 
And breathe away another, 
But he, with all his skill and might, 
Can never make a Brother. 

This power alone, thou Mystic Art, 
Freemasonry, is thine; 
The power to tame the savage heart 
With brother-love divine!
