The coronation - Elendil's Oath

Jan van Eyck
Ascension marks the completion of our redemption, Christ takes up the Throne.  I was pondering the thought this week.  Much in art depicts the Coronation of Mary as Queen, but not as much I could find on the heavenly coronation of The King, just the visible part of the Ascent that humanity saw.  I wondered if it sounded like this.

Et Eärello
Endorenna utúlien
Sinome Maruvan
ar Hildinyar tenn' Ambar-Metta

English Lyrics
Out of the Great Sea
to Middle-earth I am come.
In this place I will abide,
and my heirs,
unto the ending of the world.
