“God Help the Outcasts” is a song from the 1996 Disney animated film “The Hunchback of Notre Dame“. The song is performed by the film’s female protagonist, Esmeralda, as she sings a prayer in the cathedral of Notre Dame, asking for God’s help and compassion for the outcasts and marginalized people of Paris.
The lyrics of the song express Esmeralda’s empathy and compassion for those who are cast out and rejected by society, with lines like “I ask for nothing, I can get by. But I know so many less lucky than I.” The melody is haunting and emotional, with a somber and contemplative tone that captures the solemnity of the moment.
The song was written by composer Alan Menken and lyricist Stephen Schwartz, who wrote the songs for the film. “God Help the Outcasts” has become one of Disney’s most beloved and powerful songs, and is often cited as a moving example of the social commentary and emotional depth found in “The Hunchback of Notre Dame”.
