Alcar mi Tarmenel na Erun

Tolkien’s translation of the Gloria in Excelsis Deo prayer into Quenya.

Composed in the 1960s, this work was published in the article of the same name in Vinyar Tengwar #44. Only the first two lines were translated. No English translation was given, but we offer the original:

and on earth peace, good will toward men
