Carols of Middle-earth

9. Away In Imladris

Sung by the Dúnedain, to the tune of 'Away in a Manger'

Away in Imladris
asleep in his bed,
The heir of Isildur
went where his dreams led;
Up high in the heavens
Eärendil flew
The heir of Isildur
did his hope renew.

The Elf folk are singing
they name him Estel;
The heir of Isildur
among them shall dwell.
We love thee, Dúnadan,
but must let you go
To be raised in safety
Far from our great foe.

Come to us, Dúnadan
remember your kin.
Your birthright is waiting
if battles you win.
From darkness deliver
with thy healing hands,
And lead the Dúnedain
in cleansing these lands.

Away in Imladris
asleep in his bed,
The heir of Isildur
went where his dreams led;
Up high in the heavens
Eärendil flew
The heir of Isildur
did his hope renew.
