VALJEAN
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. THÉNARDIER
Let me have your coat M'sieur.

VALJEAN
Cosette shall live in my protection.

THÉNARDIER
You are very welcome here.

VALJEAN
I will not forsake my vow.

THÉNARDIER
Take a glass.

MME. THÉNARDIER
Take a chair.

VALJEAN
Cosette shall have a father now!
