PREACHER
He is the prince of peace
He walks the angry ocean
The doves of my release
Finds in his devotion

CONGREGATION
My soul belongs to Jesus.
Jesus es mi señor.

AUREA
I want to thank the Lord
Whose mercy is a rainbow of comfort
To my mother.
I thank the governor who heard the Lord's command
To spare the life of my brother.

BERNADETTE
He is the morning sun who lights the desert mountain
He leads the thirsty one on to the silver fountain.

Jesus es mi señor.

She has our gratitude and we would like to tell her.

CONGREGATION
No matter where I go
No matter where I stray
No matter if I stumble along the way.
My soul
My soul belongs to Jesus.
Jesus es mi señor.

REVEREND
We must remember in the court of mighty God
No man can ever change his sentence.
He is a falling angel pitched to burn in hell
Till he's covered in the ashes of repentance.

I tried to teach him, but the devil's our shadow
And follows us wherever we go.
His flew with bats and the vermin of their name
Brought everlasting shame to Puerto Rico!

AUREA
Your heart is blacker than the suit you always wear
You pretend to be God's disciple.
He's not your own blood so you give his life away.
A hypocrite who hides behind the Bible!

ESMERALDA
How can you say such things about my son?
I've been a good wife. A good wife.
This marriage is done.

AUREA
For three long years
My mother prayed for this to come
And wept until her eyes were empty.
We've made America the land we call our home.
We still believe in this country.

CONGREGATION
No matter where I go
No matter where I stray
No matter if I stumble along the way.

My soul
My soul belongs to Jesus.
Jesus es mi señor.

LAZARUS
He is the morning sun who lights the desert mountain.
He leads the thirsty one unto the silver fountain.

CONGREGATION
My soul belongs to Jesus.
Jesus es mi señor.
Hallelujah my Salvation
Hallelujah my Salvation
Hallelujah my Salvation
Hallelujah
Hallelujah!
