1. I Linna En Taur

I linna en taur

Lóm alantië, i elen utúli
Hlara! Lindëan i linna en taur
Ai! Namiën i elen en taur

Cena! I anar ortëa; i rómen utúli
O rómen cenuva i aurë firuva
Ai! Namiën i elen en taur

I elen en taurë ortëa o i morni
I elen en taurë calëa i Lóm
Ai! Namiën i elen en taur

Translation from Quenya:

The song of the forest

Night has fallen, the star has come
Listen! My heart sings the song of the forest
Oh! I desire the star of the forest

Look! The sun rises; the sunrise has come
From day rise watch the day die
Oh! I desire the star of the forest

The star of the forest rises from the darkness
The star of the forest lights the night
Oh! I desire the star of the forest
