POETRY: All Shall Be Well, by Julian of Norwich

All Shall Be Well Julian of Norwich

(Adapted from Revelations of Divine Love)

And so our good Lord answered
to all the questions and doubts
that I might make,
saying comfortingly:
I may make all thing well,
I can make all thing well,
I will make all thing well,
and I shall make all thing well;
and thou shall see thyself
that all manner of thing shall be well.

Where He says, I may,
I understand it for the Father;
and where He says, I can,
I understand it for the Son;
and where He says, I will,
I understand it for the Holy Ghost;
and where He says, I shall,
I understand it for the unity of the blessed Trinity;
three Persons and one Truth;
and where He says, Thou shall see thy self,
I understand the oneing of all mankind;
that shall be saved unto the blessed Trinity.
And in these five words
God wills we be enclosed
in rest and in peace.
