Builder’s All

Today in Masonic History we present Builder’s All by Author Unknown.

Surely some workman has built
the pillar as well as the spire;
The cross that the painter has gilded
was fashioned in somebody's fire.

Surely men dig in the ditches
preparing a place for the wall;
And someone has made with her
stitches the flag that shall fly over all.

Someone has blended the plaster,
and someone has carried the stone;
Neither the man nor the Master
ever has built alone.

Making a roof for the weather,
building a house for the King;
Only by working together
men have accomplished a thing.

All have a share in the beauty,
all have a part in the plan;
What does it matter what duty
falls to the lot of a man.

Each has a hand in the building,
no one has built alone;
Whether a cross he was gilding,
whether he carried the stone.
