Dear Masonic Student,

The following was contributed by Worshipful Brother Ken Baril of our Grand Lodge Education Committee.

OUR BRETHREN AT THE FRONT

GOD OF OUR FATHERS, AT WHOSE CALL
WE NOW BEFORE YOUR ALTAR FALL.
WHOSE GRACE CAN MAKE OUR ORDER STRONG,
THROUGH LOVE OF RIGHT AND HATE OF WRONG.
WE PRAY THEE IN THY PITY SHIELD
OUR BRETHREN ON THE BATTLEFIELD.

ASLEEP BENEATH YOUR HEAVENLY DOME,
WITH MANY A TENDER DREAM OF HOME
OR CHARGING IN THE DUST AND GLARE
WITH BULLETS HURTLING THROUGH THE AIR.
WE PRAY THEE IN YOUR PITY SHIELD
OUR BRETHREN ON THE BATTLEFIELD.

OH, SOON, THOU BLESSED PRINCE OF PEACE,
BRING US THE DAY WHEN WAR SHALL CEASE
AND MEN AND BROTHERS SHALL UNITE
TO FILL THE WORLD WITH LOVE AND LIGHT.
WE PRAY THEE IN THY PITY SHIELD
OUR BRETHREN ON THE BATTLEFIELD.

From: Brotherhood ,July 1918

Words to live by: “Anyone who has ever looked into the glazed eyes of a soldier dying on the battlefield will think hard before starting a war.” Otto Von Bismarck – 1815-1898, Prussian Statesman, Prime Minister
