  • [choir singing softly]

  • [female speaking elvish]

  • Female translating: The world is changed.

  • I feel it in the water.

  • I feel it in the earth.

  • I smell it in the air.

  • Much that once was, is lost.

  • For none now live who remember it.

  • It began with the forging of the great rings.

  • Three were given to the elves--

  • Immortal, wisest, and fairest of all beings.

  • Seven to the dwarf-lords--

  • Great miners and craftsmen of the mountain halls.

  • And nine.

  • Nine rings were gifted to the race of men,

  • Who, above all else, desire power.

  • For within these rings

  • Was bound the strength and will to govern each race.

  • But they were, all of them, deceived,

  • For another ring was made.

  • In the land of mordor in the fires of mount doom,

  • The dark lord sauron forged, in secret, a master ring

  • To control all others.

  • And into this ring he poured his cruelty, his malice,

  • And his will to dominate all life.

  • One ring to rule them all.

  • One by one, the free lands of middle-earth

  • Fell to the power of the ring.

  • But there were some who resisted.

  • A last alliance of men and elves

  • Marched against the armies of mordor.

  • And on the slopes of mount doom,

  • They fought for the freedom of middle-earth.

  • [shouting indistinctly]
