Introduction to the Gospel for Easter Season

All Things Shall Be Well


All Things shall Be Well

No fantasy of over-heated hope

this living Person standing in the room;

with wounds of death but risen from the tomb.

Together, joy and disbelief! And who can cope?

Spirit-filled, his flesh is resurrected life,

victorious over human sin and death.

He breathes Godís fresh, life-giving breath

We witness to loveís triumph over strife.

What good and perfect news is ours tell!

All good will come, and all things shall be well!

[Year B - Third Sunday of Easter]
