La Grotte de Massabielle1858

1858 Massabielle

The old rocks of Lourdes

Cast their spell

Bernadette Soubirous

Poor sickly child

Sees the mother of the Lord

Who will she tell?


Eventually she told the world

The world came to the place

They are coming still today

From every tribe and race

They touch the rock face with their hands

And silently they pray

This is indeed a holy place

A place where you want to stay


Now a camera brings me there

I can visit every day

I went there forty years ago

With crowds along the way

Yet the Grotto is a one to one

Just you and Bernadette

And the lady who appeared to her

It appears she is there yet
