Fair-faced Maiden


Fair-faced maiden before a golden hall
Standing, watching, waiting for a call
Upon a horn from far away
Calling her forward to face her day
When she will ride forward into war
Riding towards Gondor and other lands far

Riding with sword shinning in the light
Riding with a call to arms and might
Riding onward to glory and death
Riding onward to face her greatest test

Fair-faced maiden before a golden hall
Standing still, straight and tall
Awaiting a call for her that will never come
But towards war and death Dernhelm will run
