(Verse 1: Quenya | Verse 1:)

A Olórin i yáresse | Olórin, who once was…
Mentaner i Númeherui | Sent by the Lords of the West
Tírien i Rómenori | To guard the lands of the East
Maiaron i Oiosaila | Wisest of all Maiar
Manan elye etevanne | What drove you to leave
Nórie i malanelye? | That which you loved?

(Verses 2 and 3: Sindarin | Verses 2 and 3:)

Mithrandir, Mithrandir, A Randir Vithren | Mithrandir, Mithrandir O Pilgrim Grey
ú-reniathach i amar galen | No more will you wander the green fields of this earth
I reniad lín ne môr, nuithannen | Your journey has ended in darkness
In gwidh ristennin, i fae narchannen | The bonds cut, the spirit broken
I Lach Anor ed ardhon gwannen | The Flame of Arnor has left this World
Calad veleg, ethuiannen. | A great light is gone out.
