All Shall Be Well

Setting: SSAA, Flute, Horn, Bells
Poet: Julian of Norwich
Length: 5 minutes

Julian's most famous poem explores the male/female aspects to this poem in God as Father, Mother and Holy Spirit with word painting, and cantus firmus style. Ideal all year around.

As truly as God is our Father, so just as truly is he our Mother. In our Father, God Almighty, we have our being. In our merciful Mother, we have our being. In our merciful Mother we are remade and restored. Our fragmented lives are knit together.

And by giving and yielding ourselves, through grace, to the Holy Spirit, we are made whole. It is I, the strength and goodness of Father-hood. It is I, the wisdom of Motherhood. It is I, the light and grace of holy love. It is I, the Trinity, it is I, the unity. I am the sovereign goodness in all things. It is I, who teach you to love. It is I, who teach you to desire. It is I, who am the reward of all true desiring. All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well. Amen.
