The Graveyard Song Lyrics

 
Original Broadway Cast
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music
The Graveyard YOUNG JANE
Helen, I have brought you a lily today
For the roses were frail
And the petals fell away
The morning mist has kissed your grave
Rest now in sleep
Our secrets will keep
Till we speak again tomorrow
When I lay myself down to sleep tonight
I pray I might
Know why God has tempered judgment
But with mercy
But with sorrow

JANE & YOUNG JANE
Let the world forsake me
Let them do their worst, I will
Withstand it all
They will not break me



BOTH JANES & ENSEMBLE
There is another world that watches us
I'm not afraid
The angels know when we have sinned
Or we have been betrayed

MISS SCRATCHERD
Jane Eyre!

YOUNG JANE
Yes, Miss Scratcherd.

MISS SCRATCHERD
Get to your class! You're late as usual.

YOUNG JANE
Yes, Miss.

MISS SCRATCHERD
Miserable little child!

JANE & ENSEMBLE
As I lay myself down to sleep tonight
I pray I might
Be granted strength to see
The spark of heaven's guiding light

JANE
My rebellion waits
The silent cry my spirit sings
Goes far beyond these gates
Oh, Helen, what awaits?
