Julian of Norwich was a charming farming girl.
Perfectly content in her little peasant world.
Prepared to live her weary dreary life.
To live as someone's perfect little wife.
Then one day she heard a higher, mighty voice.
And to her it seemed that there was a higher choice.
So she made her vows and the whole world she did tell,
She would live alone in a little walled-off cell.
Julian of Norwich, why did you go away?
Don't you know your family thinks of you every day?
And though your faith is strong it has to be said,
to your own family you may as well be dead.
Julian of Norwich was buried alive.
On only bread and water she could not survive.
But she always prepared for this day.
She went through her funeral before they locked her away.
All the people came from far and wide
They could not go in so they stayed outside
They opened up their hearts
and confessed their sins
Their stories made Julian's cut up head spin
