Tolkien’s “Burial Song for Theoden”

Because there is always hope…

Because there is always hope…

Out of doubt, out of dark, to the day’s rising
He rode singing in the sun, sword unsheathing.

Hope he rekindled, and in hope ended;
Over death, over dread, over doom lifted

Out of loss, out of life, unto long glory.

~ J.R.R. Tolkien

Just for the record:  The Tolkien Ensemble did a great job on all the songs of the Lord of the Rings, and the featured image is a crop from Alan Lee’s rendering of the battle on the Pelennor Fields.
