5. Eldar, From the Dusky Twilight

Author’s note:
To the tune “Angels, From the Realms of Glory.”

*******

Eldar, from the dusky twilight
First-born of Ilúvatar;
Ye, who saw the Two Trees in light
Now return to Valinor.
Come and bid your farewell to him,
Aragorn the true-crowned King!

Edain, of the north or south lands,
Fighting to protect your own,
Less shall you give to war’s demands
Now the king is on his throne.
Come and swear your fealty to him,
Aragorn the true-crowned King!

Dwarves who dwell in dim-lit caverns,
Smiths of deathless Dúrin’s line,
Raise a glass in all your taverns
Toast him in the strongest wine.
Come and make alliance with him,
Aragorn the true-crowned King!

Hobbits, living in your own Shire,
Look beyond its tidy bounds;
Middle-earth has much to inspire,
Life and love through it abounds.
Come and greet him at the crossroads,
Aragorn the true-crowned King!

All of Arda, join in praising
Eru, who first sang the Song,
All ye Children, voices raising,
Together a mighty throng.
Come and flourish in his kingdom,
Aragorn the true-crowned King!
