4. Go Tell It In Imladris

   
Go tell it in Imladris
Over the mountains, Steward's heir
Go tell it in Imladris
"We need advice, Elrond!"

While Rangers kept their watching
O’er Anduin that night,
Osgiliath was wary
Of dark incarnate fright

Go tell it in Imladris
Over the mountains, Steward's heir
Go tell it in Imladris
"We need advice, Elrond!"

Ranger and guardsman trembled
When lo! upon the field
There came the Riders flying
And terror they did wield

Go tell it in Imladris
Over the mountains, Steward's heir
Go tell it in Imladris
"We need advice, Elrond!"

Osgiliath was burning
When Faramir did dream
Salvation couched in riddles
Alas, what could they mean?

Go tell it in Imladris
Over the mountains, Steward's heir
Go tell it in Imladris
"We need advice, Elrond!"

A broken sword, what use is that
To Gondor's current plight?
A Halfling cannot measure up
To any Man's full might.

Go tell it in Imladris
Over the mountains, Steward's heir
Go tell it in Imladris
"We need advice, Elrond!"

Isildur's bane shall waken
So says the fateful verse
But Orc arrows are plentiful
It must be something worse

Go tell it in Imladris
Over the mountains, Steward's heir
Go tell it in Imladris
"We need advice, Elrond!"

One hundred days and ten I journeyed
And all for a dream
That came to me but once to show
Gondor's fall in seeming

Go tell it in Imladris
Over the mountains, Steward's heir
Go tell it in Imladris
"We need advice, Elrond!"

The Ring lies with a hobbit
The Ranger bears the sword
I knew that naught could come of dreams
Save elvish-made discord!

Go tell it in Imladris
Over the mountains, Steward's heir
Go tell it in Imladris
"We need advice, Elrond!"
