Unfinished Tales, Narn I Hin Hurin

(To Turgon at the Nirnaeth Arnoediad) ‘Then Huor spoke and said: "Yet if it (Gondolin) stands but a little while, then out of your house shall come the hope of Elves and Men. This I say to you, lord, with the eyes of death: though we part here forever, and I shall not look on your white walls again, from you and from me a new star shall arise. Farewell!"’
