Lyrics: Anon

By mason's art the aspiring dome
In various columns shall arise;
All climates are their native home,
Their god-like actions reach the skies.
Heroes and kings revere their name
And poets sing their deathless fame.

Great, generous, noble, wise and brave
Are titles they most justly claim;
Their deeds shall live beyond the grave
Which babes unborn shall loud proclaim.
Time shall their glorious acts enrol,
Whilst love and friendship charm the soul.
