Father, father, where are you?
Aren't you coming home like you said?
Mother, mother, come here – please do,
I am scared to go alone to bed:
Look how the clouds hide all the stars
Yonder in the depths that darkness mars!
Fear not, Estel, sweet little child,
Orodruin may rage but hope does not fade.
Rest steadfast, son, safe from the wild,
Evil dares not enter into true heart's glade.
Victorious you will be over all ill omens,
Eru will guide you from beyond the heav'ns;
Retire soundly; you're in safe hands.
