Philip replies that her soul is beautiful. The defeated Saida throws the stone away, and the Devil picks it up, noting ruefully that the stone always comes back. Scene 2 At the marketplace, the townsfolk assemble once again to greet the victorious Philip. Simon, who is once again dressed in rags, is reunited with Joan. Jacqueline enters in a daze and runs into the Devil, who is once again dressed as a holy friar. She has no memory of her week of service to the Devil, and she asks for the friar’s blessing. Philip enters and announces that he has chosen Laine, “the humblest among you,” as his betrothed. “Though heaven hath set a veil upon these eyes,” he says, “love’s one star ... Shows clear the way that leads me to thy heart.” The Devil quits the town, disappointed that his joke did not turn out as he had intended. Musical numbers Act I Introduction (instrumental) Scene 1 1.
