PRINCE HALL CREDO
I believe in God, the Grand Architect of the Universe.
The Alpha of the un-reckoned yesterdays,
the Omega of the impenetrable tomorrows.
The Beginning and the Ending.
I believe in man, potentially God’s other self.
Often faltering on his way upward,
but irrepressible in the urge to scale the spiritual Annapurna’s.
I believe in Free Masonry;
that corporate adventure in universal brotherhood, despising kinship with no child of the All Father.
I believe in Prince Hall Masonry;
a door of benevolence, securely tiled against the unworthy, but open wide to men of good rapport, whether Aryan or Hottentots.
I believe in Masonic Vows;
the truths of true men, plighted to their better selves.
