      Somewhat difficult, I'm afraid. We shall have to make some assumptions that cannot really be substantiated from available material. I think I would suggest that you just write the English words in Tengwar. Otherwise, according to certain Neo-Quenya conventions, we might arrive at something like:

      _Ea er erya heru i Cormo_ ([there] is only a single lord of the Ring)
      _erya quén ye pole cúnatas nirmeryanna_ (a single person who can bend it to his will)
      _ar umis anta exin ranta túreo_ (and he does not give others a part [a share] of [his] power)

      As I said, this relies on certain assumptions that cannot be treated as hard "Tolkien fact". For instance, I here assume that the verb _cúna-_ "bend" can be transitive as well as intransitive (it is used intransitively in the source).
