Ladies from the East and West, we have done our very best to ensure your welcome here. Bright, fraternal and sincere.

Here's To Their Health  in a Song - Version 1

Tonight we meet to do honour, to the Ladies all Masons adore,
We pledge them joy and contentment and freedom from cares evermore.
To Mothers, Wives, Sisters and Sweethearts, the Masons will never do
wrong.
We love all the Ladies, God bless them and here's to their health in a song.

Chorus: And here's to their health, here's to their health; And here's to their health in a song. (repeat)

So Brethren guard them dearly, let nothing come amiss.
Protect them in their sorrow and join them in their bliss.
Let happiness be their portion, to drive at all their grief and fears.
And kind loving hands to support them,
As they have done throughout all the years.

Chorus: And here's to their health, here's to their health; And here's to their health in a song. (repeat)

And so to the President's Lady, a dutiful homage we pay ,
May her joys be as wide as the ocean, her tears as light as the spray.
The ground that she walks on will blossom, the beauties around her shall
throng. Long life to the President's Lady and here's to her health in a song.

Chorus: And here's to her health, here's to her health; And here's to her health in a song. (sung three times)

Should old acquaintance be forgot and never brought to mind.

For auld lang syne my dear, for auld lang syne.
We'll take a cup of kindness yet, for the sake of auld lang syne.
