THE TWO CORDS

There are two cords in Scripture
The first one speaks of death,
A silver cord which breaks
When a man draws his last breath.

The second cord is scarlet
And speaks of Immanuel's blood
By which there is escape from death
'neath Calvary's cleansing flood.

Ecclesiastes 12:6,7; Joshua 2:15-21
