Les Misérables - Bring Him Home by Colm Wilkinson

A very beautiful prayer sung by an ex-convict on the run, Jean Valjean. The worldwide famous musical production is originally adapted from the old 1862 French novel by Victor Huge. From 1980 the first production up till now.. 2013.

Watched the newest movie adaption in Jakarta and was fairly disappointed by the casting. I wish they can choose a much better Javert.. or Jean Valjean (T_T)

This song is really beautiful anyway. This one is exceptionally sung by Colm Wilkinson during the Dreamcast 10th Celebration Anniversary (you can google more piece of this cool production). So, enjoy, Les Miserables on the go :)



Bring Him Home - Jean Valjean

God on high
Hear my prayer
In my need
You have always been there

He is young
He's afraid
Let him rest
Heaven blessed.
Bring him home
Bring him home
Bring him home.

He's like the son I might have known
If God had granted me a son.
The summers die
One by one
How soon they fly
On and on
And I am old
And will be gone.

Bring him peace
Bring him joy
He is young
He is only a boy

You can take
You can give
Let him be
Let him live
If I die, let me die
Let him live
Bring him home
Bring him home
Bring him home.
