Brave Enough for Love JANE
Sir, I have come back to you

ROCHESTER
Great God...



JANE
Content, ready to stand here by your side

ROCHESTER
Is it Jane?

JANE
As you see fit––
As your friend
Or as your bride

ROCHESTER
My living Jane!

JANE
Sir, you are my second self
And I will be your hands, I'll be your eyes
I am here with my heart

ROCHESTER
I can't see but I can feel
How I've loved you every day

JANE
I've loved you stronger every day
How I've lived without your touch

ROCHESTER
How I've struggled to survive

BOTH
Only God above can say.

ROCHESTER
Am I hideous, Jane?

JANE
Very, sir... You always were you know.

ROCHESTER
I see the wickedness is still within you. But is it really you, Jane? Are you come back to me?

JANE
I am!

ROCHESTER
And you are not dead in some ditch, or an outcast among strangers?

JANE
No, sir! I am an independent woman now!

ROCHESTER
An independent woman?

JANE
My aunt has died and left me her fortune

ROCHESTER
Then you possess more wealth than I––What could I possibly offer you?

I am no better than the old chestnut
Struck down by lightning, its life cleft in two
For why should you marry a blind man, a cripple
Tell me, Jane, what right do I have to you?

I prayed in the name of God
Don't let Jane suffer, don't let her die
For three days, in my despair
I cried to heaven "Where is Jane Eyre?"
Then, from my lips came a voice, came a name
I cried "Jane" from the depths
I called out, I cried "Jane"

ROCHESTER AND JANE
And I don't know what happened
But I thought I heard you...

JANE
Did you speak these words out loud?

ROCHESTER
I did. If anyone was listening, he would have thought me mad...I called out with such frantic energy.

JANE
And this was last Monday evening, just after sunset?

ROCHESTER
Yes, but what followed is the strangest point. Where the voice came from, I cannot tell, but I know whose voice it was. And the
voice replied...

JANE
Edward? Where are you? Wait for me!

ROCHESTER
Yes, yes... But how could you know that?

JANE
The secrets of your heart
Are like the secrets of the house
They have finally been revealed

ROCHESTER
There is no more to hide
I have looked death in the face
And though a part of me has died

BOTH
I will never lose faith
I will never lose heart
For you have restored my trust

And I know you're afraid
I'm as scared as you are
But willing to be brave
Brave enough for love

ROCHESTER
Now I have your hand

JANE
Clutching mine with all its might
Holding on for precious life

ROCHESTER
The purifying flame
Has washed us clean of all our fears

BOTH
It was a miracle of God

I will never lose faith
I will never lose heart
For you have restored my trust

And I know you're afraid
I'm as scared as you are
But willing to be brave
Brave enough for love

And when I heard your voice beyond the sky
I knew it was a sign from God above
One I could not deny

JANE
So, gentle audience, I married him. No woman was ever nearer to her mate than I am, ever more absolutely bone of his bone and flesh
of his flesh.

ROCHESTER
The secret of the flame
Is that there is no more to hide
It cures our blindness and our pride

BOTH
And we'll never lose faith
We will never lose heart
For you have restored my trust

And I know you're afraid
I'm as scared as you are
But willing to be brave
Brave enough for love

JANE
Edward continued blind the first two years of our marriage. Then, slowly, the sight in one eye began to return to him.

ENSEMBLE
Forgiveness
Is the mightiest sword
Forgiveness...

JANE
And when our firstborn was placed into his arms, he could see that the boy had inherited his own eyes, as they once were-large,
brilliant and black. On this occasion, we acknowledged with full hearts, that God had tempered judgment with mercy.

ROCHESTER
I will never lose faith
I will never lose heart
For you have restored my trust

JANE
And I know you're afraid
I'm as scared as you are...

BOTH
But willing to be brave
Brave enough for love

ROCHESTER, JANE AND ENSEMBLE
I will never lose faith
I will never lose heart
For you have restored my trust

And I know you're afraid
I'm as scared as you are
But willing to be brave
Brave enough for love!

I will never lose faith
I will never lose heart
For you have restored my trust

And I know you're afraid
I'm as scared as you are
But willing to be brave
Brave enough for love

JANE
Brave enough for love!

ALL
Brave enough for love
