1. Drink a Cup

Drink a cup for the fallen And a cup for the brave A cup for those living And for those in the grave Drink a cup to the fallen Of Men and of Elves Who did all for our safety And nought for themselves Drink a cup for Elendil Mighty and tall Who faced the great foe And defeated did fall Drink a cup for Isildur Gondor's great king Who built the White City But died for a ring. Drink a cup for Ereinion Who fought by their side Born to the ever-life Yet with us he died Drink a cup for wise Cirion Great Steward of old Drink a cup for his wisdom And for Eorl the Bold Drink a cup for our Captain For Boromir the Brave Who died far from home But others did save Drink a cup for Mithrandir Who's gone to the West For years he brought counsel Now deserving of rest Drink a cup for old Theoden Rohan's grim lord Who lived for his people And died by the sword Drink a cup for the maiden With blood on her face Who felled the dread Witchking And cast down his great mace. Drink a cup for the halfling Who braved Mordor's plain To destroy Sauron's weapon Through terror and pain Drink a cup for Elessar Our Captain in war The heir of Isildur Our king evermore Drink a cup for the fallen And a cup for the brave A cup for those living And for those in the grave Drink a cup and remember Whatever you do They fought and they died For me and for you
