The King beneath the mountains, The king of carven stone, The lord of silver fountains Shall come into his own! His crown shall be upholden, His harp shall be restrung, His halls shall echo golden To songs of yore re-sung. The woods shall wave on mountains. And grass beneath the sun; His wealth shall flow in fountains And the rivers golden run. The Streams shall run in gladness. The lakes shall shine and burn, And sorrow fail and sadness At the Mountain-king's return!
Lyrics: J.R.R. Tolkien.
This song, from The Hobbit, the prequel of The Lord of the Rings, by J.R.R. Tolkien, was interpreted by the Lake-Men, when Thorin, the descendant of Thror King under the Mountain, returned to claim his treasure, passing through the Lake-town under the Mountain.
The people rejoiced in meeting Thorin and his company of dwarves, and Bilbo Baggins, the hobbit, and they sang this song of yore.
This song makes me think of the Return of Jesus Christ, the King of Heaven and Earth, and the joy that will bring. The lyrics seem to match perfectly to that feeling.
