Silmaril Who sang it?

A new quoting system... well, not really, but in this topic/game, you have to guess which song it is, and who sang it.
Quote:
Erendil was a mariner
that tarried in Arvernien;
he built a boat of timber felled
in Nimbrethil to journey in;
her sails he wove of silver fair,
of silver were her lanterns made,
her prow was fashioned like a swan,
and light upon her banners laid.
It's only the first verse, off course [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

Tolkien

The song is Erendil was a mariner and Bilbo wrote and sang it in Rivendell.


Who sang:

But long ago he rode away,
and where he dwelleth none can say;
for into darkness fell his star
in Mordor where the shadows are.

It is the song about Gil-galad, and Sam sings it on the way to Rivendell, (just before Weathertop, if my memory is right?)

they bites our hands,
they gnaws our feet.
The rocks and stones
are like old bones
all bare of meat.
But stream and pool
is wet and cool:
so nice for feet!
And now we wish---

Elves sang it in Rivendell, but also Galadriel, Elrond and the other Elves that left on the Grey Ship sang it on the way to the havens..i think [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

K, I guess it's my turn then right? This one's pretty easy, so I started kind of near the end so it wouldn't be a dead giveaway:

"Grey now as tears, gleaming silver,
red then it rolled, roaring water:
foam dyed with blood flamed at sunset;
as beacons mountains burned at evening;
red fell the dew in Rammas Echor."

Thanks for not throwing things at me that are TOO objectionable! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Ok, well I don't have my book right now, so I'll do an easy one. But I don't wanna give it away, so I'll only do some of the lines.

I'm almost positive about my guess above, so...

Farewell sweet earth and northen sky,
for ever blest, since here did lie
and here with lissom limbs did run
beneath the Moon, beneath the Sun...
