I am ever in a sea of darkness
Death is always close at hand
And I’ve only lived to serve it,
It’s wish been my demand.
But still Thy whisper entices
My King on High bethroned.
No more my own devices
Now only Thine I know.

Today Thy glory shines.
Today enshrined in Thy state
Thy Mission of Love accomplished
Now we’re only left to wait.

Three days hence you set your promise
In three days the blood washed clean
We praise Thy victory forever
And from death
At last
I’m free.

No more my shroud of darkness
I am now bathed in Thy light.
To Thee my all and always
My One
My Lord
My Christ.

Kate Hightower is writing to you from the middle of her Master of Divinity and Master of Arts in Christian Thought pursuit at Gordon-Conwell—Jacksonville, where she is also a Byington Scholar. She’s an avid Bob Dylan fan, and can always be counted upon for decadent French cooking. And she’s madly in love with her giant, brilliant golden retriever, Stella.
