The Sacred Cord, Thrice Wound

By Rob Morris

Bind it once, that in his heart,
He may surely hold
All the mysteries of the Art,
As did the Craft of old
Bind it once, and make the noose
Strong, that sin shall not unloose.

Bind it twice, that Masons' law,
Faith and Charity,
Ever may his spirit draw
In one resistless tie
Bind it twice, and make the noose
Stronger, death alone shall loose.

Bind it thrice, that every deed,
Virtuous and chaste,
On the heavenly page be spread,
Worthy of the best
Bind it thrice, and make the noose
Strongest, death shall not unloose.
