Arda Healed

From Tolkien Gateway
"I go now to the halls of waiting to sit beside my fathers, until the world is renewed."

According to a prophecy, after the Last Battle, a Second Music of the Ainur will be sung, forming a new world, called Arda Healed (Q. Arda Envinyanta). It will be the renewal of Arda Marred, the fulfillment of a perfected world that would have been were it not for the intervention of Morgoth.

Men (it is specifically stated in the Ainulindalë that Elves will not be involved) will sing with the Ainur in this Second Music.
