Threefold Cord

A triple cord whose strands are of different colors; it is used in several Rites as an instructive symbol. A striking allusion to the strength of a triple cord is found in Ecclesiastics (iv, 12) "And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken." Yet we must remember, as Whittier says in the Moral Warfare of the cause at heart, So let it be in God's own might - We gird us for the coming fight - And, strong in Him whose cause is ours In conflict with unholy powers, We grasp the weapons He has given, - The Light, and Truth, and Love of Heaven.
