"Dawn of Anguish" is another minor interlude in which the revolutionaries come to the realization that the people of Paris are not joining their revolution. Without the masses rising up to support them, they accept that the uprising's failure is inevitable and so Enjolras tells all the women and fathers of children to return to their homes, since they will only die if they remain at the barricades.

The lyrics were written by Herbert Kretzmer.

LyricsEdit

[Dawn breaks.]

Enjolras
The people have not stirred.
We are abandoned by those
Who still live in fear.
The people have not heard.
Yet we will not abandon those
Who cannot hear.
Let us not waste lives.
Let all the women and fathers of children
Go from here.

Feuilly
Drink with me to days gone by
Sing with me the songs we knew.

All
At the shrine of friendship
Raise your glass high
Let the wine of friendship
Never run dry
If I die
I die with you!
