Librarian Comment: 

This is the Falmer version of The Betrayed, translated into English above. Found in Skyrim's first DLC, Dawnguard.

 

Literal translation:

THE BETRAYED

ENGWE EMELOTH

AND WHEN THE SNOW PRINCE FELL TO GROUND
THE ICE ELVES DIVIDED ABOVE AND BELOW
NOW VANQUISHED AND BRUTALLY BOUND
ONE MOMENT HAD SHATTERED ALL THEY DID KNOW

THE ONCE COOL WIND ON THEIR SKIN
NOW REPLACED WITH THE HEAT OF THE FLAME
AND A PRIDE ONCE FELT DEEP WITHIN
FORGOTTEN ALONG WITH THEIR NAME

TORN FROM THEIR HOME OF ICE AND FROST
THROWN INTO THE PITCH BLACK DREAD OF NIGHT
LIVING IN FEAR AS THEIR MINDS BECOME LOST
AS THEIR EYES BEGIN DIMMING THE LIGHT

CHAINED AND ENSLAVED
WHAT ONCE WAS LIGHT TURNED TO BLACKNESS
ALONE AND BETRAYED
SINKING DEEPER INTO MADNESS
