Bring Him Home

by Greg Asimakoupoulos

Posted: March 24, 2013

Jean Valjean and Les Miserable is now available…

It's fin'lly out on DVD.
At last the waiting's done.
I'll pop some corn and pour some Coke
and sing with Jean Valjean.

"Les Mis" (the movie) touched my heart
as tears ran down my face.
This motion picture points to God
and His amazing grace.

Javert, Cosette and Eponine
have caused me to explore
the law's demands, love's hunger pangs
and dreams that hope for more.

And best of all this movie
(with its haunting melodies)
has bathed my soul with hymn-like notes
that prompt deep joy in me.

So, won't you get Valjean on disc
and (with me) "bring him home?"
The message is of lasting love
and points to God alone.
