Les Miserables – Finale lyrics

Do you hear the people sing
Lost in the valley of the night?
It is the music of a people
Who are climbing to the light.

For the wretched of the earth
There is a flame that never dies.
Even the darkest night will end
And the sun will rise.

They will live again in freedom
In the garden of the Lord.
They will walk behind the plough-share,
They will put away the sword
.
The chain will be broken
And all men will have their reward.

Will you join in our crusade?
Who will be strong and stand with me?
Somewhere beyond the barricade
Is there a world you long to see?
Do you hear the people sing?
Say, do you hear the distant drums?
It is the future that they bring
When tomorrow comes!

Will you join in our crusade?
Who will be strong and stand with me?
Somewhere beyond the barricade
Is there a world you long to see
?
Do you hear the people sing?
Say, do you hear the distant drums?
It is the future that they bring
When tomorrow comes...
Tomorrow comes!

    It means resilience of the human spirit to me. I saw this song performed on september 14, 2001, it was the first performance after 9/11, and the whole theater was on its feet, just wringing with emotion. I still can't hear this song or read the lyrics without tearing up. It is so hopeful for a future better than what is in the moment, and we so need to act upon and find that hope.

    I believe it is about people climbing towards the light, in other words, God or heaven, seen in context with where Jean Valjean has just gone when he died. The reference walk behind the plough share and put away the sword is a Biblical one. The revolution of the soldiers failed but there is a world beyond the spiritual barricade with God. This song gives me chills and hope too!
