Almighty and everlasting God, Thou Great Architect
of Heaven and earth, be with us as we assemble here to honor
our Past Masters.
We thank Thee for the principles of Brotherhood
and Christian living which Thou hast given us.
Bless these builders of character who have rendered
such faithful service in teaching and exemplifying these principles.
May they ever remind us of our duties and obligations
as we follow in their footsteps, so that we too may inspire
others to carry on this dedicated work, to the honor and glory
of Thy Great name.
