A MASON'S PRAYER
Architect Supreme, bend me to Thy will.
Draw Thy plans on the trestle-board of my heart
And commit me to thy builder's wisdom.
Shape Thou the structure of my life
into a temple of character
-a fortress of manhood
-a stronghold of justice.
Lead me in the paths of truth
-O Grand Master of the Universe,
That my thoughts and deeds
may bring honor to Thy cause.
Teach me that Charity will endureth all things,
And temper my passion in Thy Holy fire.
Circumscribe and keep me within Thy laws,
And when it is appointed for me to judge,
Let me cleave to the plumbline of Thy divine righteousness.
Grand me fortitude to bear my sufferings by myself,
And when my travels are ended,
Take Thou this rough ashlar of mortality
into Thy kingdom of Eternal Light.
Amen. So mote it be.
