In this, the final installment of THE LORD OF THE RINGS, Sam and Frodo go deep into Sauron's kingdom in their effort to save Middle Earth.

'I have a sword ', said Merry, climbing from his seat and drawing from its black sheath his small, bright blade. Filled suddenly with love for this old man, he knelt on one knee and took his hand and kissed it. 'May I lay the sword of Meriadoc of the Shire on your lap, Theoden, King?' he cried,'Receive my service, Iff you will!'.

And the ship went out into the High Sea and passed into the West, until at last on a night of rain Frodo smelled a sweet fragrance on the air and heard the sound of singing that came over the water.

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost,
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall waken,
From the shadows a light shall spring,
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.
