The Odd Fellows Opening Ode
Members (Brethren) of our friendly Order,
honor here asserts her sway;
All within our sacred border
Must her high commands obey.
Join, Odd Fellowship of Members (Brethren),
In the song of truth and love;
Leave disputes and strife to others,
We in harmony must move.
Honor to her courts invites us,
Worthy subjects let us prove;
Strong the chain that here unites us,
Linked with Friendship, Truth and Love.
In our hearts enshrined and cherished,
May these feelings ever bloom;
Failing not when life has perished,
Living still beyond the tomb.
