The Nine O'clock Toast to Absent Brethren

A moment at the Festive Board to remember those who are no longer with us.

1

If at nine o'clock you listen when around the Festive Board,

If you listen very carefully with your hearts tuned in accord,

You'll hear when in the west and south you're charged in fullest measure,

Some distant voices calling "Brother, may I have the pleasure ? "

2

For at nine o'clock we greet you - no matter where we stand,

We may be merely out of town, or in some far off land,

With melting hearts and brimful eyes we'll steal a moment's leisure,

To call our distant greeting "Brother, may I have the pleasure ?"

3

For we are bound together by a great eternal link,

To drink from that Masonic cup from which we all may drink,

Accept, Masonic Brethren, whose fellowship we treasure,

That old Masonic challenge "Brother, may I have the pleasure ? "
