Esmeralda-(The Hunchback of Notre Dame)-5

"God Help the Outcasts" is a song from Disney's 1996 animated feature film, The Hunchback of Notre Dame. The soft ballad was written by composer Alan Menkenand lyricist Stephen Schwartz and recorded by American singer and actress Heidi Mollenhauer in her film role as the singing voice of Esmeralda for a scene inside Notre Dame after she sees how Quasimodo and her people are treated by society. After finishing singing the song a parishioner confronts Quasimodo mistakingly thinking he's causing trouble in which Quasimodo accidentally knocks over a candlestaff and flees back to the bell tower. Esmeralda sees this terrified and what the parishioner has done and follows Quasimodo, the parishioner also attempted to prevent her and Djali from following him but the Archdeacon intervenes and prevents him from proceeding any further.

Lyrics Edit


I don't know if You can hear me,

Or if You're even there.

I don't know if You would listen

To a gypsy's prayer.

Yes, I know I'm just an outcast,

I shouldn't speak to You.

Still, I see Your face and wonder...

Were You once an outcast, too?

God help the outcasts,

Hungry from birth,

Show them the mercy

They don't find on earth,

God help my people,

We look to You, still.

God help the outcasts,

Or nobody will.


I ask for wealth

I ask for fame

I ask for glory to shine on my name

I ask for love I can possess

I ask for God and His angels to bless me!


I ask for nothing

I can get by.

But I know so many

Less lucky than I.

Please help my people,

The poor and downtrod.

I thought we all were

The children of God.

God help the outcasts,

Children of God!
