[Tune, In Infancy]
HAIL, Masonry! thou sacred Art,
Of origin divine!
Kind partner of each social heart,
And fav'rite of the Nine!
By thee we're taught, our acts to square,
To measure life's short span;
And each infirmity to bear
That's incident to man.
Cho. By thee, &c.
Though Envy's tongue should blast thy fame
And Ignorance may sneer,
Yet still thy ancient honour'd name
Is to each brother dear.
Then strike the blow, to charge prepare,
In this we all agree,
"May Freedom be each Mason's care,
"And every Mason free."
Cho. Then strike the blow, &c
