The Evening Star

Language: Sindarin

Voice Actor(s): Fiona Jallings

Source: The Return of the King Lyrics

Ngîl cennin eriel vi
Menel aduial,
Glingant sui vîr
Síliel mae.
Ngîl cennin firiel vi
Menel aduial,
Dúr, dúr i fuin
Naenol mae.
An i ú nathant
An i naun ului
A chuil, anann cuiannen
A meleth, perónen

I saw a star rise high in the
Evening sky,
It hung like a jewel,
Softly shining.
I saw a star fade in the
Evening sky,
The dark was too deep and so light died,
Softly pining.
For what might have been,
For what never was.
For a life, long lived
For a love half given.
