LyricsEdit

VALJEAN

Alone, I wait in the shadows
I count the hours
Till I can sleep
I dreamed a dream
Cosette stood by
It made her weep
To know I die

Alone, at the end of the day
Upon this wedding night I pray
Take these children, my lord
To thy embrace
And show them grace.

God up high,
Hear my prayer
Take me now
To thy care

Where you are
Let me be
Take me now
Take me there
Bring me home
Bring me home

FANTINE

Monsieur, I bless your name

VALJEAN

I am ready, Fantine!

FANTINE

Monsieur, lay down your burden

VALJEAN

At the end of my days

FANTINE

You’ve raised my child with love

VALJEAN

She’s the best of my life

FANTINE

And you shall be with God

COSETTE

Papa, papa, I do not understand
Are you all right?
They said you’d gone away

VALJEAN

Cosette, my child
Thank God, thank God
I’ve lived to see this day

MARIUS

It’s you who must forgive a thoughtless fool
It’s you who must forgive a thankless man
It’s thanks to you that I am living
Again I lay down my life at your feet

Cosette, your father is a saint
When they wounded me
He took me from the barricade
Carried like a babe
And brought me home
To you

VALJEAN (to COSETTE)

Now you are here
Again beside me
Now I can die in peace
For now my life is blessed...

COSETTE

You will live, Papa, you're going to live
It's too soon,
too soon to say goodbye!

VALJEAN

Yes, Cosette, forbid me now to die
I'll obey
I will try.
On this page
I write my last confession
Read it well
When I, at last, am sleeping

It's a story
Of those who always loved you
Your mother gave her life for you
Then gave you to my keeping.

FANTINE

Come with me
Where chains will never bind you
All your grief
At last, at last behind you
Lord in Heaven
Look down on him in mercy.

VALJEAN

Forgive me all my trespasses
And take me to your glory.

FANTINE & ÉPONINE

Take my hand
I'll lead you to salvation
Take my love
For love is everlasting

FANTINE, ÉPONINE and JEAN VALJEAN

And remember
The truth that once was spoken
To love another person

Is to see the face of God.

CHORUS

Do you hear the people sing
Lost in the valley of the night?
It is the music of a people
Who are climbing to the light.

For the wretched of the earth
There is a flame that never dies.
Even the darkest night will end
And the sun will rise.

They will live again in freedom
In the garden of the Lord.
They will walk behind the ploughshare;
They will put away the sword.
The chain will be broken
And all men will have their reward.

Will you join in our crusade?
Who will be strong and stand with me?
Somewhere beyond the barricade
Is there a world you long to see?

Do you hear the people sing?
Say, do you hear the distant drums?
It is the future that they bring
When tomorrow comes!

Will you join in our crusade?
Who will be strong and stand with me?
Somewhere beyond the barricade
Is there a world you long to see?

Do you hear the people sing?
Say, do you hear the distant drums?
It is the future that they bring
When tomorrow comes!
