This is my Lodge. It is composed of men like me. I make it what it is. I want it to be a Lodge that is a lamp To the path of Freemasonry, a lamp leading All members to goodness, truth and beauty. It will be, if I am. My Lodge will be friendly, if I am. The chairs will be filled, if I help to fill them. The Lodge can do great work, if I work. The Lodge can make generous gifts To many causes, if I am a generous giver. Many members will come into its fellowship If I bring them. It will be a Lodge of loyalty, with a noble spirit, With love and faith. Therefore, I shall dedicate myself to the task of being All of the things that I want my Lodge to be.
