Stand beside her, and guide her

Thru the night with a light from above.

From the mountains, to the prairies,

To the oceans, white with foam

God bless America, My home sweet home.

Leave all you cares and your woes behind you, Steer for the shore and Masonic shelter, Sail into harbour, and drop your anchor, Peace and joy surround you.

Chorus

Tis our delight, every reg'lar Friday, After the Lodge at the supper table, To join hand in hand with the Visiting Brethren, Singing loud the chorus.

We hope to find true light and understanding

The first Grand Lodge--in England--was established

on St. John’s day in 1717. Our lodges in America are dedicated to the Holy Saints John --- St. John the

Baptist and St. John the Evangelist.

plain aprons, although their shape may suggest old forms. The line of officers will not be progressive; balloting for office will be based on who best can serve. Each officer will install his successor; excellence in ritual will be the norm. This new lodge will be called “Quinta Essentia”. It is our goal to become quintessential Masons.

story tells of a time when several student monks had journeyed to the high Himals to study with the old sage. As they were taking their leave of him to return to the world, one of the students asked for his parting words. Milarepa replied:
