Les Miserables – The Bargain lyrics

[Valjean and Young Cosette arrive at the now empty inn, hand in hand.]

I found her wandering in the wood
This little child, I found her trembling in the shadows
And I am here to help Cosette
And I will settle any debt you may think proper
I will pay what I must pay
To take Cosette away.
There is a duty I must heed,
There is a promise I have made
For I was blind to one in need
I did not see what stood before me
Now her mother is with God
Fantine's suffering is over
And I speak here with her voice
And I stand here in her place
And from this day and evermore

Mme. Thenardier
Let me have your coat, M'sieur

Cosette shall live in my protection

You are very welcome here

I shall not forsake my vow

Take a glass

Mme. Thenardier
Take a chair

Cosette shall have a father now!
