Heaven's Light / Hellfire

This song is by Tom Hulce and appears on the Disney soundtrack The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1996).

QUASIMODO
So many times out here
I've watched a happy pair
Of lovers walking in the night
They had a kind of glow around them
It almost looked like heaven's light

I knew I'd never know
That warm and loving glow
Though I might wish with all my might
No face as hideous as my face
Was ever meant for heaven's light

But suddenly an angel has smiled at me
And kissed my cheek without a trace of fright

I dare to dream that she
Might even care for me
And as I ring these bells tonight
My cold dark tower seems so bright
I swear it must be heaven's light


PRIESTS
Confiteor Deo Omnipotenti (I confess to God almighty)
Beatae Mariae semper Virgini (To blessed Mary ever Virgin)
Beato Michaeli archangelo (To the blessed archangel Michael)
Sanctis apostolis omnibus sanctis (To the holy apostles, to all the saints)

FROLLO
Beata Maria
You know I am a righteous man
Of my virtue I am justly proud

PRIESTS
Et tibit Pater (And to you, Father)

FROLLO
Beata Maria
You know I'm so much purer than
The common, vulgar, weak, licentious crowd

PRIESTS
Quia peccavi nimis (That I have sinned)

FROLLO
Then tell me, Maria
Why I see her dancing there
Why her smold'ring eyes still scorch my soul

PRIESTS
Cogitatione (In thought)

FROLLO
I feel her, I see her
The sun caught in raven hair
Is blazing in me out of all control

FROLLO
Verbo et opere (In word and deed)

FROLLO
Like fire
Hellfire
This fire in my skin
This burning
Desire
Is turning me to sin

It's not my fault

PRIESTS
Mea culpa (Through my fault)

FROLLO
I'm not to blame

PRIESTS
Mea culpa (Through my fault)

FROLLO
It is the gypsy girl
The witch who sent this flame

PRIESTS
Mea maxima culpa (Through my most griveous fault)

FROLLO
It's not my fault

PRIESTS
Mea culpa (Through my fault)

FROLLO
If in God's plan

PRIESTS
Mea culpa Through my fault

FROLLO
He made the devil so much
Stronger than a man

PRIESTS
Mea maxima culpa (Through my most griveous fault)

FROLLO
Protect me, Maria
Don't let this siren cast her spell
Don't let her fire sear my flesh and bone
Destroy Esmeralda
And let her taste the fires of hell
Or else let her be mine and mine alone

GUARD
- Minister Frollo, the gypsy has escaped.

FROLLO
- What?

GUARD
No longer in the cathedral. She's gone.

FROLLO
- But how? Never mind. Get out, you idiot!
I'll find her. I'll find her if I have to burn down all of Paris.

Hellfire
Dark fire
Now gypsy, it's your turn
Choose me or
Your pyre
Be mine or you will burn

PRIESTS
Kyrie Eleison (Lord have mercy)

FROLLO
God have mercy on her

PRIESTS
Kyrie Eleison (Lord have mercy)

FROLLO
God have mercy on me

PRIESTS
Kyrie Eleison (Lord have mercy)

FROLLO
But she will be mine
Or she will burn!
