The Scarlet Cord


Once uncut stones, unaware of thee

Now gathered to the Lord in sweet melody

Dovetail our worship with angels song

Blending infinite harmony with spiritual tongue


Taken, placed, in the jewelled splendour

Of your holy robe, we will fully surrender

As oil is poured, we’re created anew

Our lives fully given in praise to you


Bind us all with the scarlet cord

Together in unity – of one accord

Seal this moment upon our lives

Marked and noted in heaven’s archives


Shakings we’ve felt and overcome

To bring us here to the Temple of the Son

Now made pillars, forever to stand

Spiritually strong, we go hand in hand.
