Varda:

The wife of Manwë, Varda kindled the stars during the shaping of Arda. She lives on the top of Taniquetil, with Manwë. Varda is the one most often called on for help by the elves, and they have many songs in her praise:

Snow-white! Snow-white! O Lady clear!
O Queen beyond the Western Seas!
O Light to us that wander here
Amid the world of woven trees!

Gilthoniel! O Elbereth!
Clear are thy eyes and bright thy breath!
Snow-white! Snow-white! We sing to thee
In a far land beyond the Sea

O stars that in the Sunless Year
With shining hand by her were sown,
In windy fields now bright and clear
We se your silver blossoms blown!

O Elbereth! Gilthoniel!
We still remember, we who dwell
In this far land beneath the trees,
Thy starlight on the Western Seas.
(LOTR.92-93)


A Elbereth Gilthoniel,
silvren penna míriel
o menel aglar elenath!
Na-chaered palan-díriel
o galadhremmen ennorath,
Fanuilos, sle linnathon
nef aear, si nef aearon!
(LOTR.254)

A partial translation of the above song in Elvish:

Star-Queen Star Kindler
? slope jewel? the heavens glory star?!
? ? far and wide ?
tree-woven lands of Middle-Earth,
? ever-white ?
? ? now ? ?
