Yuletide in Exile: Songs of the Dúnedain

4. Morgoth Lay Ibounden

Morgoth lay ibounden
bounden in a bond
fore thousand Ages
thought he not too long

And all was for a jewel
A jewel that he tok

as clerkes finden
Wreten in here book

Ne hadde the jewel take ben
That jewel take ben
Ne hadde ever Lúthien
a ben forebearers' Queen

Blissed be the time
That jewel take was
Therefore we moun singen
"Deo gracias"!


I know, there's no Latin in Númenor, but I don't have a rhyming Quenya equivalent. Tune: Adam Lay Ibounden (Mediaeval Baebes have a rendition).
