На сон грядущий

Language: Russian (Русский)

Ночная тьма безмолвие приносит
И к отдыху зовёт меня.
Пора, пора! покоя тело просит,
Душа устала в вихре дня.

Молю тебя, пред сном грядущим, боже:
Дай людям мир; благослови 
Младенца сон, и нищенское ложе,
И слёзы тихие любви!

Прости греху, на жгучее страданье
Успокоительно дохни,
И все твои печальные созданья
Хоть сновиденьем обмани!

At bedtime

Language: English after the Russian (Русский)

Nocturnal dark brings the silence 
Now calling me to rest.
It's time, it's time! my body begs for peace,
my soul worn out in whirls of day.

I pray Thee at bedtime, my Lord:
Give peace to man, and baby's sleep;
Keep and bless even the lowest crib,
And quiet tears of love!

Forgive our sins, and blow a kiss
To soothe burning pain,
And all your saddened creatures
Delude now with dreams again!
