[BISHOP]
Am
Come  in, sir, for you are weary,
Am                        C
And the night is cold out there.
C                         Dm
Though our lives are very humble,
        E                Am
What we have, we have to share.

Am
There is wine here to revive you.
Am                         C
There is bread to make you strong.
C                          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, I had the lion's share.
C#m/E
The silver in my hand cost twice what I had earned
F#m
In all those nineteen years, that lifetime of despair.
G#                 Dm
And yet he trusted me.

Dm
The old fool trusted me, he'd done his bit of good.
Dm/F
I played the grateful serf and thanked him, like I should.
Gm
But when the house was still, I got up in the night,
A                       D5     F5/D 
Took the silver took my flight!

[CONSTABLES]
Em 
Tell his reverence your story 
       Em/D
Let us see if he's impressed.
         Em/C#
You were lodging here last night 
             Esus2/C B       Em
You were the honest bishop's guest.

Em
And then, out of Christian goodness,
        Em/D
When he learned about your plight,
        Em/C#          Esus2/C         B
You maintain he made a present of this silver.   [BISHOP] That is
Em
right.

N.C.  D                  G
But my friend you left so early,
       F                      C
surely something slipped your mind.
       D                G
You forgot I gave these also,
          F              B
would you leave the best behind?

Em
So Messieurs, you may release him,
         Em/D
For this man has spoken true.
     Em/C#             Em/C
I commend you for your duty,
          Esus2/B  B       E
Now God's blessing go with you

Am
But remember this, my brother. 

Am                      C
See in this some higher plan.
C                          Dm
You must use this precious silver
     E              Am
To become an honest man.

Am
By the witness of the martyrs,
Am                     C
By the Passion and the Blood.
C                         Dm
God had raised you out of darkness, 
       E                    A
I have bought your soul for God.
