4. O Come, All Ye Faithful

Author’s note:
Sung by those who fled from the Drowning of Númenor.

*******

O come, all ye Faithful,
Making your ships ready,
O come ye, O come ye to Rómenna.
Come and prepare ye,
For the coming journey.
O come, let us go eastward,
O come, let us go eastward,
O come, let us go eastward,
From Númenor.

Sing, ye who flee now,
Sing in lamentation,
O sing, all ye refugees from Ar-Pharazôn.
Thanks to Elendil,
We may flee our doom.
O come, let us go eastward,
O come, let us go eastward,
O come, let us go eastward,
From Númenor.

Yea, now the wave comes,
But we may escape it;
In Middle-earth shall be our redemption.
Word of the Valar,
We shall ne’er return home.
O come, let us go eastward,
O come, let us go eastward,
O come, let us go eastward,
From Númenor.
