District/Lodge Instructor

Message from the Lodge Instructor:

.And now, my African brethren, you see what a noble order you are members of. My charge to

you is, that you make it your study to live up to the precepts of it, as you know that they are all

good; and let it be known this day to the spectators that you have not been to a feast of Bacchus,

but to a refreshment with Masons; and see to it that you behave as such, as well at home as

abroad; always to keep in your minds the obligations you are under, both to God and your fellow

men. And more so, you my dear brethren of Providence, who are at a distance from, and cannot

attend the Lodge here but seldom; yet I hope you will endeavour to communicate to us by letters

of your welfare; and remember your obligations to each other, and live in peace and love as

brethren.—We thank you for your attendance with us this day, and wish you a safe return.

If thus, we by the grace of God, live up to this our Profession; we may cheerfully go the rounds

of the compass of this life, having lived according to the plumb line of uprightness, the square of

justice, the level of truth and sincerity. And when we are come to the end of time, we may then

bid farewell to that delightful Sun and Moon, and the other planets, that move so beautifully

round her in their orbits, and all things here below, and ascend to that new Jerusalem, where we

shall not want these tapers, for God is the Light thereof; where the Wicked cease from troubling,

and where the weary are at rest..


Then shall we hear and see and know,

All we desir'd and wish'd below,

And every power find sweet employ,

In that eternal world of joy.

Our flesh shall slumber in the ground,

Till the last trumpet's joyful sound,

Then burst the chains with sweet surprize,

And in our Saviour's image rise


(1792) PRINCE HALL, “A CHARGE DELIVERED TO THE BRETHREN OF THE AFRICAN LODGE”
