Колыбель моя качалась

Language: Russian (Русский)

Колыбель моя качалась
У Сиона, и над ней
Пальма божия склонялась
Темной купою ветвей;

Белых лилий Идумеи
Снежный венчик цвел кругом,
Белый голубь Иудеи
Реял ласковым крылом.

Отчего ж порой грущу я?
Что готовит мне судьба?
Всё смиренно, всё приму я,
Как Господняя раба!
