Voronwë Píseň lidí I. věk Epická


Pád Gondolinu Composed 1985 Recorded 4. - 5. 5. 2019


In order to fulfil his mission entrusted to him by the Vala Ulmo, Lord of Waters, Tuor found himself in need of a guide to go to Gondolin, which no one knew where to seek. Ulmo sent to him Voronwë, the last mariner rescued from the last ship attempting to reach Valinor in search of aid. Voronwë had previously lived in Gondolin, and after he had met Tuor, dressed in armour ready for the Lord of Water´s messenger, he agreed to lead him to the Hidden City.

Jana Pažoutová/ Bardě

The original lyrics by Alex Lewis:



D               A            D 

The path I trod was dark

             G                                 D

But the song in my heart was lighter

D              A             D

The sea is wild and harsh

                      G                  A

The Lords of Wrath never retire


And who can I see


On the shore before my eyes?


An elf in a cloak,

G                     D A

Soaked and cold, it’s no surprise


   D                                                   Hmi

:/ Voronwë, the words he spoke were true


And somehow here I knew


That I would find you, find you :/

   G                D

Welcome Voronwë, I await you!

G               D

Voronwë, I await you!


The haulberk silvered gold

The shield a field of blue

A symbol of a swan,

A white winged swan, scribed there so true


And who can I see... as above


Voronwë, the words he spoke were true... as above


The Ered Wethrin end

And Vinyamar empty

The last from seven ships

Saved now for this, his aid to lend me


And who can I see... as above


Voronwë, the words he spoke were true... as above
