Hymn for Gondor (Portuguese translation)


Hymn for Gondor

Gondor! Gondor, between the Mountains and the Sea!
West Wind blew there; the light upon the Silver Tree
Fell like bright rain in gardens of the Kings of old.
O proud walls! White towers! O wingéd crown and throne of gold!
O Gondor, Gondor! Shall Men behold the Silver Tree,
Or West Wind blow again between the Mountains and the Sea?

O Hino de Gondor

Gondor! Gondor de um lado os Montes, do outro o Mar!
Soprava o Vento Oeste lá, e a luz chovia devagar
Sobre a Árvore de Prata e os jardins dos Reis de Outrora.
Ó muros altos! Torres brancas! Coroa alada e trono de ouro!
Ó Gondor, Gondor! Irão os homens a Árvore contemplar
Ou o Vento Oeste irá soprar nos Montes e no Mar?
