S nashej zhizn`yu vechno smezhnaya
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Xor monaxov
S nashej zhizn`yu vechno smezhnaya,
Vechno ishhushhaya nas,
Smert` prixodit, neizbezhnaya,
V kazhdy'j den` i v kazhdy'j chas.
Blago, blago nedremavshemu,
Mirno gost`yu ozhidavshemu,
Neusy'pno posy'lavshemu
K nebesam molyashhij glas!
V e`to strashnoe mgnovenie
Ty' usly'sh` ego, gospod`!
[Daj emu uspokoenie,
Daj poslednee muchenie
Upovan`em poborot`!]1
My'sli prezhnie, kramol`ny'e,
Obrashhennomu prosti,
[Oty'mi zemnoe, dol`noe,
Daj uspenie bezbol`noe]1
I nevol`noe i vol`noe
Pregreshen`e otpusti!
