Athelas

When the black breath blows,
And death's shadow grows,
and all lights pass,
Come Athelas! Come Athelas!
Life to the dying,
In the king's hand lying!

    Athelas, also known as Kingsfoil or asëa aranion ("Beneficial of Kings"), was a sweet-smelling herb with healing powers, such as curing wounds, poison and counteracting evil influence such as the Black Breath. (Tolkien Gateway)

آتلاس

وقتی نفس سیاه نزدیک دمید
یا سایه مرگ بس فزونی ورزید
آنگاه که روشنی همه درب‌ها بست،
بنورد گیاه آتلاس در کف دست!
جان‌بخش برای او که جانش بسپرد
آنگه که، به دست شاه، خود گردد خُرد!
 
Thanks!
