Eponine
Don't you fret, M'sieur Marius
I don't feel any pain
A little fall of rain
Can hardly hurt me now
You're here, that's all I need to know
And you will keep me safe
And you will keep me close
And rain will make the flowers grow.

Marius
But you will live, 'Ponine - dear God above...
If I could heal your wounds with words of love...

Eponine
Just hold me now, and let it be.
Shelter me, comfort me...

Marius
You would live
A hundred years
If I could show you how
I won't desert you now...

Eponine
The rain can't hurt me now
This rain will wash away what's past
And you will keep me safe
And you will keep me close
I'll sleep in your embrace at last
The rain that brings you here
Is Heaven-blessed!
The skies begin to clear
And I'm at rest
A breath away from where you are
I've come home from so far Marius [in counterpoint]
So don't you fret, M'sieur Marius
I don't feel any pain
A little fall of rain
Can hardly hurt me now
Hush-a-bye, dear Eponine
You won't feel any pain
A little fall of rain
Can hardly hurt you now
I'm here
That's all I need to know
And you will keep me safe
And you will keep me close
And rain
Will make the flowers... I will stay with you
Till you are sleeping
And rain
Will make the flowers...
Grow.

Eponine
The rain can't hurt me now
This rain will wash away what's past
And you will keep me safe
And you will keep me close
I'll sleep in your embrace at last
The rain that brings you here
Is Heaven-blessed!
The skies begin to clear
And I'm at rest
A breath away from where you are
I've come home from so far Marius [in counterpoint]
So don't you fret, M'sieur Marius Hush-a-bye, dear Eponine
I don't feel any pain You won't feel any pain
A little fall of rain A little fall of rain
Can hardly hurt me now Can hardly hurt you now
I'm here
That's all I need to know
And you will keep me safe I will stay with you
And you will keep me close Till you are sleeping
And rain And rain
Will make the flowers... Will make the flowers...
Grow.

[She dies. Marius kisses her, then lays her on the ground.]

Enjolras
She is the first to fall
The first of us to fall upon this barricade

Marius
Her name was Eponine
Her life was cold and dark, yet she was unafraid.

Combeferre
We fight here in her name

Prouvaire
She will not die in vain.

Lesgles
She will not be betrayed.

[They carry her body off.]

    It is a truly moving son that tells the story of a brave hearted woman embracing death in the arms of the person she loves
