Daniel C. McCallum
By Request of Sagamore Lodge, F.& A.M.
Air, "Old Hundred."
Oh! Heavenly Father deign to bless
Us brethren of the mystic tie,
In love and truth, and righteousness,
Oh! draw our souls forever nigh.
From East to West,
from South to North,
No narrow compass doth us bound,
This mandate Thou hast issued forth,
"All ills be thine wherever found."
Grand Architect supreme Thou art,
Before Thy Throne we humbly bow;
Receive this homage of the heart,
And list! oh! list, unto our vow.
In thee we trust, our God, our all,
We bless Thy name forevermore,
Till from this earth bright angels call
To Lodge transcending SAGAMORE.
