(Featured in “Lothlorien”)
Words & Music by Philippa
Boyens and Howard Shore
Performed by Elizabeth Fraser

Verse One (Quenya)
A Olorin i yáresse
Mentaner i Numeherui
Tírien i Romenori
Maiaron i Oiosaila
Manan elye etevanne
Norie i melanelye?

Verse One (Translated)
Olorin, who once was...
Sent by the Lords of the West
To guard the lands of the East
Wisest of all Mailar
What drove you to leave
That which you loved?

Verse Two (Quenya)
Mithrandir, Mithrandir, A Randir Vithren
u-reniathach i amar galen
I reniad lín ne mor, nuithannen
In gwidh ristennin, i fae narchannen
I lach Anor ed ardhon gwannen
Caled veleg, ethuiannen.

Verse Two (Translated)
Mithrandir, Mithrandir, O Pilgrim Grey
No more will you wander the green fields of this earth
Your journey has ended in darkness.
The bonds cut, the spirit broken
The Flame of Anor has left this World
A great light, has gone out.
