    THE LODGE WHERE I BELONG


    Though my Lodge may lack the splendor
    Of a temple or a shrine,
    Or possess the gaudy fixtures
    That are classed as superfine-
    Yet the fellowship it offers
    Is in price beyond compare
    And I wouldn't trade it ever
    For life's treasures-rich or rare!

    The hand-clasp firm, the word of cheer,
    Oh, such meanings they impart:
    The mystic ties of brotherhood
    That links us, heart to heart!
    You'd really have to travel far,
    For the friendships quite so strong
    As those one always finds right here
    In the lodge where I belong.

    When all my earthly travels end,
    And at last I'm borne to rest
    Where mortal hands no longer toil
    And I cease life's endless quest
    Why there's nothing I'd like better-
    Should I join the heavenly throng-
    Than to meet with all the brothers
    Of the Lodge where I belong!
