2. Jacques -- I'll Make A Mason Out Of You

Most Worshipful Brother Jacques Huyghebaert -- I'll Make A Mason Out Of You:

https://youtu.be/vGfJeW_CcFY

Most Worshipful Brother Jacques Huyghebaert is the only 33° Scottish Rite Freemason in Sri Lanka and Past Grand Master of Czech Republic.

ONCE UPON A TIME, a Clueless Team, 'mis-led' by Saint Lehan Edirisinghe sees two pillars erected at the outer porch of King Solomon's Temple.

The name of the one on the left hand is Boaz, and signifies strength;

the name of the one on the right is Jachin, and denotes establishment.

They, collectively, denote establishment and strength, and allude to a passage in I Kings 7:21:

"In Strength shall this House be Established."

Jacques, the "District Grand Orator" of the District Grand Lodge of Sri Lanka under the United Grand Lodge of England begins to speak.

[Jacques, District Grand Orator, spoken]

One moment!

You seem to be missing something:

"Jachin" signifies 'Establishment'; and

"Boaz" denotes 'Strength'.

You need both to reach the Light. ¹

* Team, except Saint Lehan, fails

 

[Disgruntled Jacques quips, and then begins to sing]

We've got a long way to go....

[Jacques]

Let's get down to business:

"To sign -- Dr Hans!" ²

Did they send me daughters, when I asked for sons? ³

You're the saddest bunch I've ever met

But you can bet before we're through:

Mister, I'll make a Mason -- out of you!

Tranquil as a forest, but on fire within

Once you learn your lines, you are sure -- to win.
You're unfit amongst any society of men
And devoid of moral worth:

Somehow I'll -- make a Mason -- out of you!

[Ron]

I'm never gonna close my deal!

[Denzil]

Say goodbye to those who knew me!

[Nanda]

Boy, was I a fool in life for signing up!

 

[Thilanga]

This guy's got 'em scared to death!

[Shanika]

Hope he doesn't see right through me.....

[Sanjeeva]

Now I really wish that I knew how to sell!

[Jacques & Chorus]

(Free-Mason) We must be swift as a coursing river

(Free-Mason) With all the force of a great typhoon

(Free-Mason) With all the Boaz of a raging fire

Mysterious as -- right side Pillar -- Ja-chin!! ⁴

[Mason]

Time is racing toward us -- 'til Dr Hans arrives ²

Heed my every order -- and you might -- survive

You're unsuited for -- the rage of war

So pack up, go home, you're through

How could I, make a Mason, out of you?

[Jacques & Chorus]

(Free-Mason) We must be swift as a coursing river

(Free-Mason) With all the force of a great typhoon

(Free-Mason) With all the Boaz of a raging fire

Mysterious as -- right side Pillar -- Ja-chin!!

(Free-Mason) We must be swift as a coursing river

(Free-Mason) With all the force of a great typhoon

(Free-Mason) With all the Boaz of a raging fire

Mysterious as -- right side Pillar -- Ja-chin!
