Come with me
Where chains will never bind you
(Oh, I’m ready, Fantine.)
All your grief
At last, at last behind you
Lord in Heaven
Look down on him in mercy.

Forgive me all my trespasses
And take me to your glory.

Take my hand
I’ll lead you to salvation
Take my love
For love is everlasting
And remember
The truth that once was spoken
To love another person
Is to see the face of God.

Les Misérables

There is a lot that been happening leading up to this line in the song at the end of Les Misérables. I’ll let you catch up.

I absolutely love this scene and song.  This portion of the song is between Fantine and Jean Valjean.

This last line “to love another person is to see the face of God” is a beautiful sentiment. I believe it comes from what John teaches us.

No man has at any time [yet] seen God. But if we love one another, God abides (lives and remains) in us and His love (that love which is essentially His) is brought to completion (to its full maturity, runs its full course, is perfected) in us!

1 John 4:12 AMP

If we really want to see God we must love one another. Not the trite sayings of love, but the real thing. We must love and be loved. Love is a two-way street.
