[valjean is in a chair and Fantine's ghost appears and starts to sing]

FANTINE
Monsieur I bless your name

VALJEAN
I am ready Fantine

FANTINE
Monsieur lay down your burdens

VALJEAN
At the end of my days

FANTINE
You raised my child in love

VALJEAN
She's the best of my life

FANTINE
And you will be with God

VALJEAN
Oh

COSETTE
Papa, Papa I do not understand
Are you alright why did you go away?

VALJEAN
Oh Cosette my child
Am I forgiven now
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
And again I lay 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
Now you are here
Again beside me
Now I can die in peace
And 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 the story of one who turned from hating
A man who only learned to love when you were in his keeping

FANTINE
Come with me these 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
Take my hand I'll lead you to salvation

[Valjean take Fantine's hand and walk outside the building and see the ghosts of the barricade people]

Take my love for love is everlasting

FANTINE AND VALJEAN AND THE POPE
And remember the truth that once was spoken
To love another person is to see the face of God

PEOPLE WHO DIED AT THE BARRICADE
Do you hear the people sing?
Lost in the valley of the lost in the valley of the night?
This is the music of the 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 when the sun will rise
We will live again in freedom in the garden of the Lord
We will walk behind the plough shed
We 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 want to see?
Do you hear the people sing? Say do you hear the distant drums?
it is the future that we 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 want to see?
do you hear the people sing? Say do you hear the distant drums?
It is the future that we bring when tomorrow comes

[singing chords]
Tomorrow comes!
