Molitva

Language: Russian

V minutu zhizni trudnuju
Tesnitsja l' v serdce grust',
Odnu molitvu chudnuju
Tverzhu ja najizust'.

Jest' sila blagodatnaja
V [sozvuch'ji]1 slov zhivykh,
I dyshit neponjatnaja,
Svjataja prelest' v nikh.

S dushi kak bremja skatitsja,
Somnen'je daleko --
I veritsja, i plachetsja,
I tak legko, legko...

Gebet

Language: German

In Stunden der Entmutigung, 
wenns gar zu trübe geht,
gibt Trost mir und Ermutigung 
ein wundersüß Gebet. 

Sein heilig Wort so weihevoll, 
so voll von Leben tönt; 
es fühlt mein Herz sich reuevoll, 
beseligt und versöhnt. 

Aus meiner Brust der Zweifel scheu, 
wie eine Last entweicht. 
Ich wein aufs Neu, ich glaub aufs Neu,
mir wird so leicht, so leicht.
