I also sang this in a choir in high school. It expressed my own desires so clearly that I have never forgotten it and finally had to search it out 10 years later. The symbolism really draws me in, it is powerful.

I sang this poem as a choral song at All State Music Camp as a high school student in Iowa. It became a part of me,and in college I recall walking on campus on freezing winter nights, singing this song softly to myself, but really to God, to use me, refine me, and let me be part of something great. I've sung it many many times. I thank God that I have gotten to do some pretty cool things in service to Him and He's still with me in a new stage of my life, 30 years later. I now am planning to do a painting to illustrate this poem.--I'm excited!
