We Will Stand
At the Grey Havens...
Category: Drama
Date: 2003-09-14

 

But to Sam the evening deepened to darkness as he stood at the Haven; and as he looked at the grey sea he saw only a shadow on the waters that was soon lost in the West.  There he still stood far into the night, hearing only the sigh and murmur of the waves on the shores of Middle-earth, and the sound of them sank deep into his heart.  Beside him stood Merry and Pippin, and they were silent.

(JRR Tolkien: from the Lord of the Rings "The Grey Havens")

We will stand by your side
We will stand
We will stand
By the shores of the Sea
We will stand
We will honor all we've shared
We will silent witness bear
And by your side
We will stand

Long has been the journey
And bittersweet the road
That has brought us to this time
Of joy and pain
As we clasp hands in farewell
And we send our hearts away
We will stand by your side
At the end

We will stand by your side
We will stand
We will stand
By the shores of the Sea
We will stand
We will honor all we've shared
We will silent witness bear
And by your side
We will stand

Spirits rose and faltered
And our courage glimmered low
As we left all that we knew
And held so dear
Yet we found our own convictions
Through our love for what is true
And so we stand by your side
At the end.

We will stand by your side
We will stand
We will stand
By the shores of the Sea
We will stand
We will honor all we've shared
We will silent witness bear
And by your side
We will stand

Stories last forever
Though our part in them must end
And adventures wait for children
Not yet born
And someday they will know
All that was sacrificed and won
When we stood by your side
At the end

We will stand by your side
We will stand
We will stand
By the shores of the Sea
We will stand
We will honor all we've shared
We will silent witness bear
And by your side
We will stand
