*******

O mallorn tree, O mallorn tree,
How are your leaves so golden!
O mallorn tree, O mallorn tree,
How are your leaves so golden!

Not only in the summer’s haze,
But even in short winter days.
O mallorn tree, O mallorn tree,
How are your leaves so golden!

O mallorn tree, O mallorn tree,
Your silver boughs delight us!
O mallorn tree, O mallorn tree,
Your silver boughs delight us!

With every year, more lovely still,
In your shade none would e’er do ill.
O mallorn tree, O mallorn tree,
Your silver boughs delight us!

O mallorn tree, O mallorn tree,
In Valinor, none fairer!
O mallorn tree, O mallorn tree,
In Valinor, none fairer!

If someday I should travel West,
Still here my heart would long to rest.
O mallorn tree, O mallorn tree,
In Valinor, none fairer!
