Cair Andros
See the ship of long foam
Strong, serene, and tall-
See the glimmering Ship's Home
Gondor's eastern wall.

This desecration of our land
The fouling of the rock
This island we took in hand
The key and now the lock.

Why have the eagles cried?
When was it overrun?
When had we to save it tried?
When was this madness done?

But now we have a chance
To take it back we may try
With sword and lance
Their strength defy.

The work is done now
Men have died
And bent the bow
In the doing, courage tried.

Now the day has broken
Our fears are left behind
Now have Valar spoken
And the King is kind.
