Sunday Afternoon: What Kierkegaard Wanted On His Tombstone
As perhaps most know, Kierkegaard was a rather melancholic and despairing Christian, with an unfortunately fragile and sensitive temperament. He reminds me, temperamentally, of a male version of Emily Dickinson. [Yes, yes, I know that Christians aren’t supposed to be despairing—no emails please.]
Here is the Brorson hymn that he wanted on his tombstone—it is very fitting.
“In a little while,
I shall have won,
The entire battle
Will at once be done.
Then I may rest
In halls of roses
Speak with my Jesus.”
