LyricsEdit

CONSTABLE ONE

Tell his reverence your story

CONSTABLE TWO

Let us see if he's impressed

CONSTABLE ONE

You were lodging here last night

CONSTABLE TWO

You were the honest Bishop's guest.

CONSTABLE ONE

And then, out of Christian goodness

CONSTABLE TWO

When he learned about your plight

CONSTABLE ONE

You maintain he made a present of this silver—

BISHOP

—that is right.

But my friend you left so early

Surely something slipped your mind

You forgot I gave these also;

Would you leave the best behind?



So, Messieurs, you may release him

For this man has spoken true.

I commend you for your duty

And God's blessing go with you.



And remember this, my brother,

See in this some high plan.

You must use this precious silver

To become an honest man.



By the witness of the martyrs,

By the passion and the blood,

God has raised you out of darkness:

I have bought your soul for God.
