LOTR Holiday Carols

Middle-earth Holiday Carols

1. The Mallorn and Niphredil

   
Author's note:
This is a traditional old Lothlórien carol, sung to the tune “The Holly and the Ivy.”

*******

The mallorn and niphredil
When they are both in bloom
Of all the trees that are in the wood
The mallorn bears the crown

Refrain:
Oh the rising of the stars
And the running of the stream
The blowing of lord Manwë's winds
Sweet singing of Varda

The mallorn wears a pale bark
As tall as any tower
And Arien moves 'cross the sky
To count off every hour

[Refrain]

The mallorn bears a blossom
As bright as any gold
And Tilion shall follow her
Until Arda grows old

[Refrain]

The mallorn bears its gold leaves
Throughout the winter chill
Eärendil shall guide us home
To Valinor, there still

[Refrain]

The mallorn bears a ripe nut
As wholesome as the day
And we shall see Ilúvatar
And music for him play

[Refrain]

The mallorn and niphredil
When they are both in bloom
Of all the trees that are in the wood
The mallorn bears the crown

[Refrain]
