The Goddess of Masonry

Goddess of Purity,

Spotless and rare;

Emblem of Charity

Unsullied, fair;

Symbol of Meekness—

Radiant, bright,

‘Minding the Brethren

Of realms of Light—

Strong in the knowledge

Virtuous might.


Symbol of Chasity,

Spirit of Bliss,

Coming to cheer us,

Through the abyss,

Token of faithfulness—

Be thou our guide;

Emblem of Hopefulness—

Keep by our side:

Help us and lead us o’er

Every dark tide!
