Title: O Come, O Come, Isildur's Heir Author: celandineb Fandom: LotR Characters: Men Rating: general Length: 191 words Summary: A carol from Fourth Age Gondor. Note: Based on "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.
Refrain: 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.
O come, thou heir of Elendil, come And make sad Gondor thy new home; Make safe the land that quails from the Eye, And bring an end to misery.
O come thou child of Eriador And share with us thy knowledge of lore; Forsaking not thy people to dwell On those misfortunes all may foretell.
O come, Estel our promised hope, bind Us as a nation leading mankind; From dark forbodings give us release, And bring to us a time of peace.
