Bezzvezdnaja polnoč' dyšala prochladoj.
Krutilasja Laba gremja pod oknom.
O Prage ja s grustnoju dumal otradoj,
O Prage mečtal zabyvajasja snom.

Mne snilos', leču ja: Orël sizokrylyj
davno i davno by v polëte otstal.
A ja, uvlekaem nevidimoj siloj,
vsë vyše i vyše vzletal.

I s neba kartinu ja čudnuju videl,
V ubranstve i bleske ves' zapadnyj kraj,
Moravu i Labu i dal'njuju Savu,
gremjaščij i sinij Dunaj.

I Pragu ja videl, i Praga sijala,
Sijal zlatoverchij na Petšine chram,
Molitva stavjanskaja gromko zvučala,
V napevach znakomych minuvšim vekam.

I v staroj odežde svjatogo Kirilla,
Episkop na Petšin vschodil.
I sledom valila narodnaja sila.
I vozduch byl polon kuren'em kadil.

I klir, vospevaja nebesnuju slavu
zval milost' gospodnju na zapadnyj kraj,
Na Labu, Moravu, na dal'njuju Savu,
na šumnyj i sinij Dunaj.
