The Valar set his Silmaril up in the sky
To be viewed by all mankind as a star
And the moon shone down her light
As she had ten thousand years before

Maglor cast his Silmaril into the ocean
To be seen by human eyes nevermore
And the sea rolled on, and on, and on
As it had ten thousand years before

Maehdros threw himself with his Silmaril
Into a burning pit of all-consuming fire
And the flames continued to burn and lick
As they had ten thousand years before

When the world is changed and the Silmarils refound
Yavanna shall take them and they shall be shorn
And the Two Trees will revive and all shall be as new
As nothing ever had been moments before
