En el principio estaba Eru, el Unico, que en Arda es llamado Ilúvatar; y primero hizo a lo Ainur, los Sagrados, que eran vástagos de su pensamiento, y estuvieron con él antes ue se hiciera alguna otra cosa. Y les habló y les propuso temas de música; y cantaron ante él y él se sintió complacido. Pero por mucho tiempo cada uno de ellos cantó solo, o junto con unos pocos, mientras el resto esuchaba; porque cada uno sólo entendía uellas parte de la mente de Ilúvatar de la que provenía él mismo, y eran muy lentos en comprender el canto de sus hermanos. Pero cada vez ue escuchaban, alcanzaban una comprensión más profunda, y crecían en unisonancia y armonía.

Do not scorn pity that is the gift of a gentle heart, Éowyn! But I do not offer you my pity. For you are a lady high and valiant and have yourself won renown that shall not be forgotten; and you are a lady beautiful, I deem, beyond even the words of the Elven-tongue to tell. And I love you. Once I pitied your sorrow. But now, were you sorrowless, without fear or any lack, were you the blissful Queen of Gondor, still I would love you. Éowyn, do you not love me?’

'There is nothing, Lady Galadriel,' said Gimli, bowing low and stammering. 'Nothing, unless it might be - unless it is permitted to ask, nay, to name a single strand of your hair, which surpasses the gold of the earth as the stars surpass the gems of the mine. I do not ask for such a gift. But you commanded me to name my desire.'

The Elves stirred and murmured with astonishment, and Celeborn gazed at the Dwarf in wonder, but the Lady smiled.

But Rúmil said: ‘Ilúvatar was the first beginning, and beyond that no wisdom of the Valar or of Eldar or of Men can go.’

'Who was Ilúvatar?' said Eriol. 'Was he of the Gods?'

'Nay,' said Rúmil, 'that he was not, for he made them. Ilúvatar is the Lord for Always who dwells beyond the world; who made it and is not of it or in it, but loves it.'
