(New) Life Together

Welcome back to another week of work, study, and transformation at Young Harris College.  This week, having just returned from our protracted weekend of rest and celebrations, I turn to an Irish-born writer, Katharine Tynan, to supply a poetic beginning our time together. 


Enjoy her lyrical rhythms and join us in chapel this week as we induct another class into our College’s honor society, Alpha Chi.


Everyone is welcome to attend.


Have a wonderful week and see you along the way.



Bring flowers to strew His way,

Yea, sing, make holiday;

Bid young lambs leap,

And earth laugh after sleep.

For now He cometh forth

Winter flies to the north,

Folds wings and cries

Amid the bergs and ice.

Yea, Death, great Death is dead,

And Life reigns in his stead;

Cometh the Athlete

New from dead Death’s defeat.

Cometh the Wrestler,

But Death he makes no stir,

Utterly spent and done,

And all his kingdom gone.
