Aragorn’s Victory Song

I see a fire behind your eyes

That darkness cannot quell;

As ashes from the mountain rise,

You’ll storm the gates of Hell

Mornie Utulie, Horo!

 –

The ancient lava from the earth

Is cool beside the flame

That burns within a faithful breast

And earns a man his fame

Mornie Utulie, Horo!

 –

The Evening Star shines on my path,

Her voice rings in my ears,

Her kisses, gold, rest on my lips,

Her eyes are free from fear

Mornie Utulie, Horo!

 –

These visions are my only guide

Through haunted, sleepless nights

When cold and hunger choke the soul

And swallow heaven’s light

Mornie Utulie, Horo!

 –

I see the doors of Sauron’s hall

Open wide, like jaws;

They seek to grind the worth of man

And banish all our laws

Mornie Utulie, Horo!

 –

The silver stroke of death is near,

And it may well claim me,

But He who calls the sun to rise

Will shape my destiny

Mornie Utulie, Horo!

 –

The hall beyond these mortal bounds

Will open wide to me,

And there where light is never dimmed

I’ll spend eternity

Mornie Utulie, Horo!

 –

To fight for love of all that lives

And challenge fickle fate

May prove to be our secret power

And triumph over hate

Mornie Utulie, Horo!

 –

Let the howl of wolves be heard

And the clash of shattered shields;

We’ll show the world how gallant men

Can die but never yield!

Mornie Alantie, Horo!
