Fantine:
Cosette, it's turned so cold
Cosette, it's past your bedtime
You've played the day away, and soon it will be night

Come to me, Cosette the light is fading
Don't you see the evening star appearing?
Come to me, and rest against my shoulder
How fast the minutes fly away and every minute colder.
Hurry near, another day is dying
Don't you hear, the winter wind is crying?
There's a darkness which comes without a warning
But I will sing you lullabies and wake you in the morning.

Valjean:
Oh Fantine, your time is running out
But Fantine, I swear this on my life

Fantine:
Look M'sieur, where all the children play...

Valjean:
Be at peace
Be at peace evermore

Fantine:
My Cosette...

Valjean:
Shall live in my protection

Fantine:
Take her now...

Valjean:
Your child will want for nothing

Fantine:
Good M'sieur, you come from God in heaven

Valjean:
And none will ever harm Cosette as long as I am living

Fantine:
Take my hand, the night grows ever colder

Valjean:
And I will keep you warm

Fantine:
Take my child, I give her to your keeping

Valjean:
Take shelter from the storm

Fantine:
For God's sake, please stay 'till I am sleeping
And tell Cosette I love her, and I'll see her when I wake...
