Yuletide in Exile: Songs of the Dúnedain

2. O Rest Ye Weary Gentlemen

Gee, another cheery adaptation.

**************



O rest ye weary gentlemen,

Let nothing you dismay.

Remember all whose labors

Have brought you to this day

To save us all from Sauron's power

When we were gone astray,

O tidings of comfort and joy,

Comfort and joy,

O tidings of comfort and joy.



In Breeland in Eriador,

The Yuletide day has dawned,

And grief is laid aside for once,

Upon this blessed morn;

For even lonely strangers

Shall not be held in scorn:

O tidings of comfort and joy.

Comfort and joy,

O tidings of comfort and joy.



From Gondor to Eriador,

Together we are come,

To hear all tales mirthful,

In joyous reunion.

In memory of all absent friends

Raise up your voice in song,

O tidings of comfort and joy,

Comfort and joy,

O tidings of comfort and joy.



Fear not then for tomorrow,

Let nothing you affright,

This day is made for revelry.

Let fall your cares tonight,

All those who toil faithfully

'gainst Sauron's power and might,

O tidings of comfort and joy,

Comfort and joy,

O tidings of comfort and joy.
