3. Nazgûl We Have Seen on High

Author’s note:
To the tune “Angels We Have Heard on High,” an Orkish carol sung during the War of the Ring.

*******

Nazgûl we have seen on high
Flying over Mordor’s blight
Those below will hide their eyes
Fearing lest they pause in flight.
Mordor is the land of Sauron.
Mordor is the land of Sauron.

Uruks, why this quarreling?
We are gaining victory.
We will be the Eye’s darlings;
Say naught contradictory.
Mordor is the land of Sauron.
Mordor is the land of Sauron.

Come to Barad-dûr and see
Him whose pow’r sustains us all.
Fear his wrath if you dare flee
Sauron, who holds us in thrall.
Mordor is the land of Sauron.
Mordor is the land of Sauron.

The Eye sees whate’er he wills
And commands the course of war;
Sees Men fleeing to the hills,
For our victory is sure.
Mordor is the land of Sauron.
Mordor is the land of Sauron.
