Tinuviel elvanui
Elleth alfirin edhelhael
O hon ring finnil fuinui
A renc gelebrin thiliol...

'Tinuviel [the] elven-fair,
Immortal maiden elven-wise,
About him cast [her] night-dark hair,
And arms [like] silver glimmering...'

Overall Meaning

The lyrics are taken from Howard Shore's composition "Flight to the Ford," which is a part of his soundtrack for the movie "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring." The song plays during a pivotal scene in the movie when the character Arwen, an elf princess, is riding on horseback with the wounded character Frodo towards the safety of the elven city of Rivendell. The first four lines are sung in Sindarin, an Elvish language that J.R.R. Tolkien invented for his Middle-earth stories.
