Bernadette I believe

the story of your vision,

A story true for me from you,

a story right from heaven.

Bernadette I believe

And I will believe for your protection,

That on the day you strolled away

You saw the Immaculate Conception.

And on that rock from where you prayed

You saw her feet embossed in gold,

Behold from this Our Lady spoke

Of miracles untold.

So many times you did see

a mockery made of you

Of certain folk from your village Lourdes,

The things they said untrue.

Then came the bush that bloomed a rose,

yet baron for many years,

Then came the stream which miraculously healed

Right from Our Lady’s tears.

Although disbelieved you still stood up,

to all those who questioned you,

You stood your ground which was heavenly bound

For what you said was true.

Although you suffered grief and pain

from within your convent home,

With all the lonesome work and strain

You never were alone.

The hours ticked by, then minutes even

Where on your death bed laid,

Then came our lady, with her to heaven

A miracle price you paid.

For be it known that on this day

The little girl who strolled away,

Was kind and dear,

so very quaint.

Dear Bernadette –

You are a saint.

Inspired by the film A Song of Bernadette
