Hymn to Vinyë Lambengolmor

by Vyacheslav Stepanov


Alvë nar alassië
Sí, lan vinyë nalvë;
Epë vinyarë felminqua,
Epë yárië nurrinqua
Cemenell’ auvalvë.

Coivielva þenna ná,
Rongo teluvassa,
Mal vanessë lambion,
Arcastarwa lambion
Anta ven alassë.

Aiya Mar Istarion,
Aiya Lambengolmor,
Aiya Quentari ar Parmor,
Ill’ i lorur imbi parmar,
Len suilantan holmo!

Alvë hantar Aratain,
I Andúnë pella,
Alvë hantar Ataren,
Yeva saila indonen
Eleni pepellar!

Nai amanya ólië,
Nai amanya ñolmar,
Nai amanya otornassë,
Nai amálië alassë,
Vinyë Lambengolmor!


Let us be happy
Now, while we are young;
After youth full of feeling,
After old age full of complaints
We will depart from the Earth.

Our life is short,
Soon it will end,
But the beauty of languages,
Of Tolkien’s languages
Gives us joy.

Hail the House of Scholars,
Hail Lambengolmor,
Hail Speakers and Learners,
All who fall asleep among books,
I give you greetings heartily!

Let us give thanks to the High Ones,
Who are beyond the West,
Let us give thanks to the Father,
By whose wise thought
The stars orbit!

May the society be blessed,
May the school be blessed,
May the brotherhood be blessed,
May it flourish with great prosperity,
Vinyë Lambengolmor!
