arnowitt@sover.net Lyr Req: Bells of Norwich? / Julian of Norwich (7) Lyr Add: BELLS OF NORWICH / JULIAN OF NORWICH 01 Feb 97


The song is "Julian of Norwich, and is in the book "Rise Up Singing" Julian was a mystic, an anchorite (sp?) who chose to be walled into a room in Norwich Cathedral (a practice of the times) There are writings of hers available today, which describe her visions of God. Interesting lady and wonderful song. Sydney Carter wrote it. Lyrics

BELLS OF NORWICH / JULIAN OF NORWICH

Loud are the bells of Norwich and the people come and go
Here by the tower of Julian I tell them what I know
Ring out bells of Norwich and Let the winter come and go
All shall be well again I know


Love like the yellow daffodil is coming through the snow
Love like the yellow daffodil is Lord of all I know
Ring out....

Ring for the yellow daffodil, the flower in the snow
Ring for the yellow daffodil and tell them what I know
Ring out...

(sung as chorus)
All shall be well I'm telling you Let the winter come and go
All shall be well again I know.

Carter recorded it on "Lovely is the Dance" Also Bok/Muir/Trickett did so as well, ^^^
