The Ring Verse Spoken

For those of you who might have missed out video of Tolkien reciting the fiery letters engraved upon the One Ring of Power… here it is again!

“One Ring to Rule them all!” ~ J.R.R. Tolkien

There is something very special about hearing Tolkien himself reciting the Ring Verse and hearing it in his own voice.

We are so lucky this recording o for Tolkien has been preserved through time, so that we could hear today the actual voice of the man himself! I believe this originated from a BBC Radio interview.

What better way to start the new year then with the sound of Tolkien’s own voice reciting his most famous written words. In Tolkien’s own voice, we hear the Ring Verse written with fire by the black hand of the Dark Lord upon the One Ring of Power! Music: Kevin MacLeod – Dark Times ~ Royalty Free Music.

J. R. R. Tolkien Reciting the One Ring Verse

Ring Verse in English

One Ring to-rule-them-all, One Ring to-find-them,
One Ring to-bring-them-all, and in-the-Darkness bind-them!

Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

Ring Verse in the Black Speech

Ash nazg durbatulûk, ash nazg gimbatul,
ash nazg thrakatulûk, agh burzum-ishi krimpatul!

Shre nazg golugranu kilmi-nudu
Ombi kuzddurbagu gundum-ishi
Nugu gurunkilu bard gurutu
Ash Burz-Durbagu burzum-ishi.
