When the darkness of fear falls,
Rest safe, secure in my arms.
Despair not, though the Shadow calls,
Child of hope, you're born for us.

When unseen foes surround you,
Dream sweetly, sleep without tears.
Tremble not, your heart be true,
Child of hope, you'll break all fears.

Child of hope,
Stride across the sky.
Light of Gil-Estel,
Fore'er will never die.

Then fire rekindles from ashes,
Light springs amidst the dark.
A star your path assures,
Child of hope, you'll make your mark.

Then renew you for the day;
There are many paths to tread,
Down new roads and secret gates,
Child of hope, doubt you will shred.

Child of hope,
Stride across the sky.
Light of Gil-Estel,
Fore'er will never die.

Sleep now, my child, fear not the dark;
No evil finds you now.
Cry not, dear one, smile as the lark;
You're safe with me, I vow.

Lean back, lean back, and close your eyes,
High hope the stars will bring.
Dream on, dream on, hope strides 'cross the skies,
A light from the dark will spring.

Child of hope,
Stride across the sky.
Light of Gil-Estel,
Fore'er will never die.
