film: the wizard of oz

Okay so when I was a kid there was this musical adaptation of The Wizard of Oz simply called The Wizard. They relaunched this show a few years ago with a new cast, and everything looks fine except for the Tin Man

WICKED WITCH OF THE EAST PRAYS
TO THE HOUSE THAT FALLS ON HER

if I have caused harm,
let it be forgiven.

if I have spread fear,
let it cede to joy.

grant me the luck to be
remembered for something
other than the hearts I have hollowed
and the mess I have wrought
with my hands.

blame me not
for the sins of my family.

if death may be quick,
let it be quick.
