the Musical - Down The Mountain Lyrics

VIOLET: (spoken)
I came to talk to the Preacher

VIRGIL: (spoken)
Nobody talks to him unless they talk to me first

VIOLET: (spoken)
You're so young. I need his blessing

VIRGIL: (spoken)
Not to worry, ma'am. We'll get you taken care of in a jiffy

YOUNG VI: (spoken)
Papa, careful

FATHER:
Easy does it
Hold on, baby, there we are –

YOUNG VI: (spoken)
How far?

FATHER:
We're halfway down by now
We'll get you taken care of, somehow

VIOLET: (spoken)
I have something to show him

FATHER:
God Almighty, show your mercy

VIRGIL: (spoken)
Perhaps you could show me first

FATHER:
God Almighty, please forgive me…

VIOLET: (spoken)
Okay, but only if you take me to him after.
Here's what I need. I've written it all down. My name.
My one desire. All the Bible verses which must speak for me.

FATHER:
God Almighty, show your mercy
God Almighty, please forgive me…

YOUNG VI: (spoken)
There's the river

FATHER:
We can cross it
This might hurt you, be prepared –

YOUNG VI: (spoken)
I'm scared!

FATHER:
I know, but don't you fret
We'll get you taken care of, yet

VIRGIL: (spoken)
My child, we must pray for your spirit

FATHER:
Don't you fret…

VIOLET: (spoken)
Never mind my spirit

FATHER:
God forgive

VIRGIL: (spoken)
All suffering has a purpose

VIOLET: (spoken)
Maybe that's true, but it doesn't make it right!

FATHER:
There's the doctor's –

VIRGIL: (spoken)
Kneel with me. Lord, help us to remember that you have a purpose in all things.
With me today is – what was your name again, sister?
Hey. Hey, you come back here! Call security! We got a scrambler.

FATHER:
There's a light on
Hold on, baby, almost there –
Thank heaven for that moon
We'll get you taken care of soon

VIOLET: (spoken)
Hello? Mr. Preacher? Anybody?
