Introduction

First Revelation -- Of His precious crowning with thorns; and therewith was comprehended and specified the Trinity, with the Incarnation, and unity betwixt God and man's soul; with many fair shewings of endless wisdom and teachings of love: in which all the Shewings that follow be grounded and oned.

Second Revelation -- The changing of colour of His fair face in token of His dearworthy Passion.

Third Revelation -- That our Lord God, Allmighty Wisdom, All-Love, right as verily as He hath made everything that is, all-so verily He doeth and worketh all-thing that is done.

Fourth Revelation -- The scourging of His tender body, with plenteous shedding of His blood.

Fifth Revelation That the Fiend is overcome by the precious Passion of Christ.

Sixth Revelation The worshipful thanking by our Lord God in which He rewardeth His blessed servants in Heaven.

Seventh Revelation -- [Our] often feeling of weal and woe; with ghostly understanding that we are kept all as securely in Love in woe as in weal, by the Goodness of God.

Eighth Revelation -- Of the last pains of Christ, and His cruel dying.

Ninth Revelation -- Of the pleasing which is in the Blissful Trinity by the hard Passion of Christ and His rueful dying: in which joy and pleasing He willeth that we be solaced and mirthed with Him, till when we come to the fulness in Heaven.

Tenth Revelation -- Our Lord Jesus sheweth in love His blissful heart even cloven in two, rejoicing.

Eleventh Revelation -- An high ghostly Shewing of His dearworthy Mother.

Twelfth Revelation -- That our Lord is most worthy Being.

Thirteenth Revelation -- That our Lord God willeth we have great regard to all the deeds that He hath done: in the great nobleness of the making of all things; and the excellency of man's making, which is above all his works; and the precious Amends that He hath made for man's sin, turning all our blame into endless worship.

Fourteenth Revelation -- That our Lord is the Ground of our Prayer. Herein were seen two properties: the one is rightful prayer, the other is steadfast trust; which He willeth should both be alike large; and thus our prayer pleaseth Him and He of His Goodness fulfilleth it.

Fifteenth Revelation -- That we shall suddenly be taken from all our pain and from all our woe, and of His Goodness we shall come up above, where we shall have our Lord Jesus for our meed and be fulfilled with joy and bliss in Heaven.

Sixteenth Revelation -- That the Blissful Trinity, our Maker, in Christ Jesus our Saviour, endlessly dwelleth in our soul, worshipfully ruling and protecting all things, us mightily and wisely saving and keeping, for love; and we shall not be overcome of our Enemy.
