Wedding Chorale Lyrics

    Marius and Cosette lead a wedding procession

    Ring out the bells
    Upon this day of days!

    May all the angels
    Of the Lord above

    In jubilation
    Sing their songs of praise!

    And crown this
    Blessed time with
    Peace and love.

    The procession becomes a dancing celebration. A waltz is played

    The Baron and Baroness de Thénard wish to pay their respects to the groom!

    I forget where we met
    Was it not at the Chateau Lafarge
    Where the Duke did that puke
    Down the Duchess's de-coll-etage?

    No, `Baron de Thénard'
    The circles I move in are humbler by far.
    Go away, Thénardier!
    Do you think I don't know who you are?

    He's not fooled. Told you so.
    Show M'sieur what you've come here to show.
    Tell the boy what you know!

    Applause from the dancers as the waltz finishes

    When I look at you, I remember Eponine.
    She was more than you deserved, who gave her birth
    But now she is with God and happier, I hope,
    Than here on earth!
    The waltz starts up again.

    So it goes, heaven knows
    Life has dealt me some terrible blows.

    You've got cash and a heart
    You could give us a bit of a start!
    We can prove, plain as ink
    Your bride's father is not what you think.

    There's a tale I could tell

    Information we're willing to sell...

    There's a man that he slew
    I saw the corpse clear as I'm seeing you!
    What I tell you is true!

    Pity to disturb you at a feast like this
    But five hundred francs surely wouldn't come amiss.

    In God's name say what you have to say.

    But first you pay!
    What I saw, clear as light,
    Jean Valjean in the sewers that night.
    Had this corpse on his back
    Hanging there like a bloody great sack.
    I was there, never fear.
    Even found me this fine souvenir.

    Thénardier shows Marius a ring

    I know this! This was mine!
    This is surely some heavenly sign!

    One thing more, mark this well
    It was the night the barricades fell.

    Then it's true. Then I'm right.
    Jean Valjean was my savior that night!

    Marius punches Thénardier and then throws money at him

    As for you, take this too!
    God forgive the things that we do.
    Come my love, come Cosette,
    This day's blessings are not over yet!

    Marius and Cosette leave
