Gandalf's Song of Lórien is Gandalf the White's retort to Gríma Wormtongue after Gríma Wormtongue insults Galadriel, referring to her as "the Sorceress of the Golden Wood" and saying that "webs of deceit were ever woven" there. Immediately after singing his response, Gandalf tosses aside his cloak and revealing that he is now Gandalf the White, rather than Gandalf the Grey.[1]

In Dwimordene, in Lórien
Seldom have walked the feet of Men,
Few mortal eyes have seen the light
That lies there ever, long and bright.
Galadriel! Galadriel!
Clear is the water of your well;
White is the star in your white hand;
Unmarred, unstained is leaf and land
In Dwimordene, in Lórien
More fair than thoughts of Mortal Men.
