LES MISERABLESValjean Arrested - Valjean Forgiven Lyrics
Tell his reverence your story
Let us see if he's impressed
You were lodging there last night
You were the honest Bishop's guest.
And then, out of Christian goodness
When he learned about your plight
You maintain he made a present of this silver...
Bishop: (interrupting the Constable)
That is right.
But my friend you left so early
Surely something slipped your mind
(He presents two candlesticks to Valjean)
You forgot I gave these also
[- From: http://www.elyrics.net -]
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.
[The constables leave]
But remember this, my brother
See in this some higher plan
You must use this precious silver
To become an honest man
By the witness of the martyers
By the Passion and the Blood
God has raised you out of darkness
I have bought your soul for God!
