The Missing (Old English): Music by Howard Shore. Words by Philippa Boyens. Translation by David Salo.

She never watched | Héo naefre wacode dægréd
the morning rising,
Too busy with the | Tó bisig mid dægeweorcum
day's first chores
But oft she would watch | Ac oft héo wacode sunnanwanung
the sun's fading
As the cold of night crept | Thonne nihtciele créap geond móras
across the moors
And in that moment | And on thaere hwile
She felt the loss | Héo dréag thá losinga
Of everything that | Earla thinga the héo forléas.
Had been missed
So used to feeling | Héo swá oft dréag hire sáwle sincende
the spirit sink
She had not felt | Héo ne cúthe hire heortan lust
her own heart's wish
