The tide is rising, and so are we!

Monte la fièvre, tourne le vent

Pour notre Terre, pour nos enfants

Monte l'urgence, Voici le Temps

Humains levons-nous maintenant

Humains levons-nous maintenant!

Como la marea, nos alzamos

Como la marea, nos alzamos

Con la tormenta nos levantamos

Llegó la hora de alzarnos

Llegó la hora de alzarnos!

The land is holy...

The storm is raging...

The sun is shining...

The world is ready..

 

 

With great thanks to my husband, Yotam Schachter, for co-writing this song with me, and to the Rev. Fred Small for an energizing and joyful collaboration!

The song was inspired by a banner at the launch of Harvard Heat Week which read The Seas are Rising, So Are We! The chant comes from the organization Gulf South Rising.
