For health and food,
for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends,
Great Architect, we thank thee.

MW Grand Master, Brethren; Our first Grand Lodge was constituted in 1717 in London.
It was founded to inculcate the virtues of charity, truth and brotherly love.
Remember those who gave us these banners when you honour those of our own Grand Lodge who carry them forward.
Brethren, please be upstanding and join me in a toast to Grand Lodge.

The Tyler 's Toast
To all poor and distressed freemasons,
Wherever they may be,
On the land, on the sea or in the air.
A speedy relief from their afflictions,
And a safe return to their native land,
If they so desire.
To all poor and distressed brethren.
If you have any questions or comments, we would be pleased to hear from you.
