The Land of the Fathers Mme de Rols

Will she ever forgive me, what have I done?



Pierre

Did they all have to die, can I live with this shame?

Father Dominic

For the deeds that were done in the name of our Lord

God have mercy on us

Villager

Did our faith lead us here?

Father Dominic

Did I do all I could?

Villagers

They had children like us

Will our wounds never heal?

Lord, were we wrong to fight?

They turned from you

Lord, they were friends we'd known for all our lives

Father Dominic

Help us Lord, help us please

Villagers

In the land of our fathers, we have lost more than hope

In the land of our fathers, will our village survive?

Will they stay?

Did they die for a reason?

Will we ever forget...can we learn?

We can never be certain what the future may bring!

In the land it is winter, but we hope and we pray for spring...

(The Protestants enter, with Martin and Benoit. Bertrande has her child in her arms)

Martin

May your journey be safe...may your child be strong

And one day I pray you'll return to your land

Bertrande

But my grief would remain, and my sorrow would grow

I must build a new life!

It is my time to go...

I have no need of land for the life I must live

With my child and my faith

I may learn to forgive

(the Protestants with Benoit leave, Martin escorting them out)

Villagers

In the land of our fathers

In the home of our sons

(...)

But still we can pray

For our sons and our daughters

(...)

Villagers (overlapping with above)

Grow...pray...and hope...and weep...and hope...and laugh.. (?)

All Villagers

In the land there's a future

As the seasons will turn

It belongs to our children

Let the story survive to tell (?)

Villagers

Grow...pray...and hope...and weep...and hope...and laugh.. (?)
