The rules are to post the lyrics of a favorite song five days in a row, explain what they mean to you (if you like) and add the video if available. This is going to be fun. You might say that I sing through life. I’m sure I inherited it from my mom. She has musical DNA. Sings, plays any instrument you give her, loves symphany and opera. Well that’s what I do. My kids say I have a song for everything. Everyday, every occasion. I have just found it’s better than counting to 10, just sing…

I don’t know if this will count but it is the epilogue of one of the greatest musicals of all time in my humble opinion.  It is about forgiveness and redemption.  If you have never seen this musical, you are in luck because I’m sure you can on Netflix.  It’s the newer version with Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway.  It’s a great story and you should watch it.  But it is long and you should give yourself plenty of time.  A word of warning, bring  a box of tissues along.  The first time I saw it was live theater with my family and I was totally unprepared for how deeply moving it was.  This is the Epilogue of the Musical…

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 the story of one 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

Eponine & Fantine:
Take my hand, and lead me to salvation
Take my love, for love is everlasting
(Valjean joins)
And remember the truth that once was spoken
To love another person is to see the face of God!

Chrous:
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, the 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 baricade 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!
(Singing chords)
Tomorrow comes!
