S nashej zhizn'ju vechno smezhnaja
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Khor monakhov
S nashej zhizn'ju vechno smezhnaja,
Vechno ishchushchaja nas,
Smert' prikhodit, neizbezhnaja,
V kazhdyj den' i v kazhdyj chas.
Blago, blago nedremavshemu,
Mirno gost'ju ozhidavshemu,
Neusypno posylavshemu
K nebesam moljashchij glas!
V `eto strashnoje mgnovenije
Ty uslysh' jego, gospod'!
[Daj jemu uspokojenije,
Daj posledneje muchenije
Upovan'em poborot'!]1
Mysli prezhnije, kramol'nye,
Obrashchennomu prosti,
[Otymi zemnoje, dol'noje,
Daj uspenije bezbol'noje]1
I nevol'noje i vol'noje
Pregreshen'e otpusti!
