Love, According to me (reprise)

The townspeople flock to the ark but the floodwaters are already sweeping them away. Silvestro tells God that he cannot abandon his people to die.

O Signore, mi devi capire,O Lord, you must understand me
la mia gente non posso tradireI cannot betray my people
ha bisogno di me come io ho bisogno di loro,They need me as I need them
sì di loro, che credono in me;Yes, I need them, who believe in me
amali come te stesso, l’invito più bello che c’è,“Love them like yourself,” the most beautiful invitation there is
e io l’ho imparato proprio da te, sì!And I learned it from you – yes, from you!
Questo è l’amore secondo me!This is love, according to me!
No, io devo restare insieme alla gente che è la mia gente,No, I have to stay with these people who are my people
la debbo accettare in tutto e per tutto nel bello e nel brutto perchèI must accept them in all and for all, in beauty and in ugliness, because
questo è l’amore secondo me, sì!This is love, according to me
Questo è l’amore che ho imparato da te!This is the love that I learned from you!

God relents: “I’m one who knows how to lose. Stop the rain, away with the waters, roll out the rainbow.”

General rejoicing.

Clementina asks Silvestro: “Do you forgive me?”

“Dreams are not sins,” he responds, as he puts his cassock back on. Clementina links arms with a handsome carabiniere who has fortuitously shown up.

The company reprise Aggiungi up posto a tavola as they sit down for a grand feast.

Silvestro prays: “Lord, forgive me if I have not known how to do your will. It won’t happen again. But for now, I pray, don’t abandon us.”

“Stubborn man! Set another place at the table – don’t you see that I am arriving?”

And a white dove flies down to sit on the empty chair.
