S našej žizn'ju večno smežnaja
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Chor monachov
S našej žizn'ju večno smežnaja,
Večno iščuščaja nas,
Smert' prichodit, neizbežnaja,
V každyj den' i v každyj čas.
Blago, blago nedremavšemu,
Mirno gost'ju ožidavšemu,
Neusypno posylavšemu
K nebesam moljaščij glas!
V ėto strašnoe mgnovenie
Ty uslyš' ego, gospod'!
[Daj emu uspokoenie,
Daj poslednee mučenie
Upovan'em poborot'!]1
Mysli prežnie, kramol'nye,
Obraščennomu prosti,
[Otymi zemnoe, dol'noe,
Daj uspenie bezbol'noe]1
I nevol'noe i vol'noe
Pregrešen'e otpusti!
