LOTR Holiday Carols

Middle-earth Holiday Carols

4. O Come, O Come, Isildur's Heir

Author's note:
This is a carol from the Fourth Age in Gondor, sung to the tune “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel.”


O come, O come, Isildur’s Heir
And ransom the White City fair,
That bides in growing dark and fear
Until the king foretold appear.

Rejoice, rejoice, our Elessar
Shall reunite all Gondor.

O come, O come, and for us fight,
And find the Tree on mountain height,
Which anciently the Eldar gave
To Númenor now under wave.


O come thou son of Arathorn
And gladden all who wait here and mourn
From out of Sauron’s darkness bring
Thy people into light and spring.


O come, Telcontar, come and cheer
Our spirits by thy presence here
Restore the might of thine own country
And rule us in your wise majesty.
