Composed & arranged by Enya/Nicky Ryan, Lyrics by Roma Ryan. Produced & Engineered by Nicky Ryan. Recorded in the digital domain by an analogue brain.
The Fellowship of the Ring’s end credits begin with Enya’s composition, “May It Be,” wherein the broken Fellowship is offered a blessing and a faint glimpse of hope: “A promise lives within you now.”

TEXT
MAY IT BE
English and Quenya Lyrics by Roma Ryan
FIRST HEARD: DISC THREE | TRACK EIGHT

May it be an evening star
Shines down upon you
May it be when darkness falls
Your heart will be true
You walk a lonely road
Oh! How are you are from home

Mornie utúlië (Darkness has come)
Believe and you will find your way
Mornie alantië (Darkness has fallen)
A promise lives within you now

May it be shadows call
Will fly away
May it be your journey on
To light the day
When the night is overcome
You may rise to find the sun

Mornie utúlië (Darkness has come)
Believe and you will find your way
Mornie alantië (Darkness has fallen)
A promise lives within you now

A promise lives within you now

Theme song from Fellowship of the Ring, Lord of the Rings Trilogy

Featured at the end of the 2001 movie Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring.

Nominated for Best Song at the Oscars, but lost to Randy Newman's "If I Didn't Have You" from Monster's Inc.

Some of the verses are in the fictional language Sindarin, which author J.R.R. Tolkien invented for his Lord of the Rings series.
