A Cord of Three

[Ecclesiastes 4:12]

As I walk down the path of righteousness
I see you walking there
With both arms holding onto Him
Letting go – you do not dare

But I see myself on His other side
Holding on as well
Asking if I can have this chance
To hold you for just a spell

So I let go with one arm, and draw you close to me
You let go with yours, and now we’re one, you see
Between us winds the wonderful part
The part that makes us strong
The part that makes us free
The tighter we hold Him the stronger we’ll be
Can’t break this cord of three

If you ever find yourself a-slipping
And you need a better grip
Don’t let Him go to cling to me
You’ll just cause me to slip

Rather take both hands and reach for Him
As I adjust my own
And I’ll still be hanging next to you
As He makes His purpose known

And with His mighty arms, He’ll draw you close to me
As long as we hold on, we’ll all be one, you see
Between us winds the wonderful part
The part that makes us strong
The part that makes us free
The tighter we hold Him the stronger we’ll be
Can’t break this cord of three

So if I find myself a-slipping
This promise I will make:
To hold my God much closer
So that this cord won’t break

Our love cannot unravel
If we hold on to the core
As we wind around each other
We build up so much more

Our time here together is just a moment in His eyes
And He’s lent us to each other while we run toward His prize
We will always be together
Because His love, it makes us strong
His love, it sets us free
And as long as we remain in Him
Forever will we be…
