BRAZILIAN MASONIC HYMN

The Brazilian Masonic hymn was wrotten by the Emperor of the Brazil Dom Pedro I,
whose symbolic name was Guatimozim, Grão Mestre of Brazilian Masonry.
This hymn is one of the most beautiful of our homeland and had its music composed
by Alberto Costet of Maschuiavelle.  The letter is the following:

   the pure Freemasonry.
