Heaven's Light/Hellfire is a song from Disney's 1996 animated feature The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
The song was intended to contrast with the song "Heaven's Light", which was sung by Quasimodo moments earlier, expressing his desire for love and hope that Esmeralda may love him, while "Hellfire" focuses on Frollo's internal conflict between his feelings of lust for her and his piety and hatred of the Gypsies.
Both songs, which are sometimes referred to collectively as "Heaven's Light"/"Hellfire" (for example on the soundtrack, in which it is track 7), describe two opposing views towards the same woman. Quasimodo sees love as "Heaven's Light" and expresses a pure hope for Esmeralda, while Frollo feels only lust for her and therefore views her as a "Hellfire".
