 +====== Masonic Kings ======
  
 +
 +Craft of King Hiram and Saint John
 +
 +They figurative work on stone,
 +
 +King Hiram he is the old sire
 +
 +And he was famous King of Tyre.
 +
 +-
 +
 +But great as King upon a throne
 +
 +Is the good, kind, true Saint John ;
 +
 +Cathedrals did craftsmen raise,
 +
 +Fills all our mind now with amase.
 +
 +-
 +
 +No modern chisel hath the power
 +
 +To trace such leaf, and bud, and flower ;
 +
 +But though our structures now are rude
 +
 +Let us all make the mortar good.
 +
 +-
 +
 +And this injunction never spare
 +
 +To have the work both plum and square,
 +
 +And it must have no crack or flaw
 +
 +So masters will lay down the law.
 +
 +Of all our work this is the chief,
 +
 +To give the needy ones relief ;
 +
 +And with truth and brotherly love
 +
 +We sublime structure raise above.
 +
 +-
 +
 +The greatest honor has been won
 +
 +By that great builder, Solomon,
 +
 +And craftsmen o'er the world do sing
 +
 +The praises of that mighty King.
