All Shall Be Well

Words by Julian of Norwhich

All shall be well
All shall be well
All manner of things shall be well
Mother Jesus

Kind Mother
In whom I am reborn
Nearer me than I myself
Rid of our sharpest scourge

Deep Wisdom
From whose sweet open side
Flows the ground of Motherhood
and intellect in kind

Great Hen
Beneath whose wing and breast
Gathers us from scattering
To humble, simple, rest

Close Knower
Of all your children's needs
Make real Great Pow'r, Great Love
bury our sick deeds.
