Faith, hope and love when intertwined
Release us from the cords that bind;
When these combine as three in one
There’s nought can bring the soul undone.

Faith must come first, the centre piece
Fed by His Word its strands increase
In strength to carry through each doubt—
All fabrications must get out!

Where faith is certain, hope controls,
It weaves itself through heart and soul
Each aspect of our life renews,
Anxiety and fear excludes.

Such faith and hope now formed within
Bears witness to the world of men;
What Christ has done in changing me
Through love outworking, others see.

Love is the strand God’s Spirit weaves
Through which the world at large perceives
The mighty change that God has done
In one now trusting in His Son.

Faith, hope and love are intertwined
A threefold cord that God designed;
His Spirit braids each strand in place
A work of His amazing grace.
