Notre Dame

As above, so below,

As below, so above,

I am your Lady.

Under vast starry skies,

A cathedral, centuries old,

Of spire and vault,

Of buttress and rose,

Now ascends to Heaven.

As above, so below,

As below, so above,

I am your Lady.

Your prayers, now ash,

Scatter to the Four Winds

And rise — oh, they rise!!! —

Conveyed in multiple languages 

To the Many-Named Divine.

As above, so below,

As below, so above,

I am your Lady.

Mother, sister, daughter, wife,

Father, brother, son, husband:

I see through the eyes

Of all peoples on this planet

No matter their perceived status.

As above, so below,

As below, so above,

I am your Lady.

My foundation is still there, 

For you were deeply forged 

Within the fires of love and hope.

Join hands and rebuild strong

On ALL my sacred ground.

As above, so below,

As below, so above,

You are … Notre Dame.
