[The Bishop]
                        Am
Come in sir for you are weary
                          C
And the night is cold out there
                          Dm
Though our lives are very humble
        E               Am
What we have we have to share
                      Am
There is wine here to revive you
                           C
There is bread to make you strong
                           Dm
There's a bed to rest till morning
          E                  C#m
Rest from pain and rest from wrong

[Valjean]
C#m
He let me eat my fill
C#m
I had the lion's share
E
The silver in my hand cost twice what I had earned
F#m
He knows those nineteen years that lifetime of despair
G#                   D#m
And yet he trusted me
D#m
The old fool trusted me

He'd done his bit of good
F
I played the grateful serf and thanked him like I should
G#m
But when the house was still
G#m
I got up in the night
A#
Took the silver
Took my flight!!

[Constable 1 & 2]
Em
Tell his reverence your story
                     G
Let us see if he's impressed
                            D
You were lodging there last night
                             Em
You were the honest Bishop's guest.
                           Em
And then, out of Christian goodness
                           G
When he learned about your plight
                       D
You maintain he made a present of this silver -

[The Bishop]
        Em
That is right.
       D                  G
But my friend you left so early
       G7                     C
Surely something slipped your mind
    D                   G
You forgot I gave these also
          Am             B
Would you leave the best behind?
   Em
So Monsieurs you may release him
         G
For this man has spoken true
  Am                   D
I commend you for your duty
                           Em
May God's blessing go with you.
                      Am
But remember this, my brother
                        C
See in this some higher plan
                           Dm
You must use this precious silver
   E                Am
To become an honest man
                      Am
By the witness of the martyrs
                       C
By the Passion and the Blood
                          Dm
God has raised you out of darkness
       E                   Am
I have saved your soul for God!
