The Beacon Light

By Rob Morris

A city set upon a hill 
Cannot be hid 
Exposed to every eye, it will 
Over surrounding plain and vale, 
An influence shed, 
And spread the light of peace afar, 
Or blight the land with horrid war. 

Each Mason's Lodge is planted so 
For high display 
Each is a BEACON LIGHT, to show 
Life's weary wanderers as they go, 
The better way 
To show by ties of earthly love, 
How perfect is the Lodge above! 

Be this your willing task, dear friends, 
While laboring here 
Borrow from Him who kindly lends 
The heavenly ladder that ascends 
The higher sphere 
And let the world your progress see,
