    This is the song I wrote and sang to propose to my beautiful wife, Jessica, at our park bench where we had our first date. The song is based on the passage found in Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 and includes an excerpt from the famous poem "How Do I Love Thee?" by Elizabeth Barrett Browning.

    Lyrics:
    Cord of Three Strands

    From the very first moment I saw
    Your beautiful smile I knew,
    My armor was flawed
    For the arrow you shot found a chink,
    Deep enough to sink
    To the fletching inside of my heart

    From the very first moment I prayed
    That God would confirm to me
    The provision he made
    When he brought me you as my helper
    For we're better together
    Knit in hearts, minds and souls

    For I know
    With you by my side
    And Christ at the center of our lives
    We'll form an unbreakable
    Cord of three strands

    For two are better than one
    If one falls down the other one
    Picks him up
    So if you'll become my wife
    I'll promise you I will be yours
    For the rest of our lives

    How do I love thee? Let me count the ways
    I love thee to the depth and breadth and height my soul can reach
    I love thee to the level of everyday's most quiet need
    I love thee with the breath, smiles, tears of all my life

    Then between God, me and you
    There's nothing we cannot do
    We'll form an unbreakable
    Cord of three strands

    Ecclesiastes 4:9-12, excerpt from "How Do I Love Thee?" Elizabeth Barrett Browning
