lyrics
In the dawn of the world
When the sun first set sail
And the Eldar realms unfurled
Aelin-uial
Twilight dreams for the elves
Hidden deep their halls to delve

But unquiet in his heart
Turgon searched for realms apart
Hidden from the dark lord's art

Came wise words by the sea
In Vinyamar leave thee
A helm, mail and sword

To the hidden valley
Strong city on a hill
In the hidden valley
White with dazzling halls…
Gondolin

In the sun glittering
By the moon shimmering
Snow-white birds over fountains sing
On the hidden rock water rings

Gleaming marble and carved stone
Singing rain of crystal shone
In the tower Eldar King on his throne

Trees of Silver and of Gold
As in Valinor of old
Yet their doom in fire foretold

In the hidden valley
Treason wakes in thy walls
In the hidden valley
Doom of Mandos calls…
Gondolin

A prophecy for the king
Leave the pride of thy making
From Nevrast last hope will bring

The helm, mail & sword
Borne by a blessed lord
Signs from the sea by the king ignored

In the hidden valley
Fire wakes in thy walls
In the hidden valley
Great was thy fall
Gondolin
