На холмах Грузии лежит ночная мгла,
Шумит Арагва предо мною.
Мне грустно и легко: печаль моя светла,
Печаль моя полна тобою
Тобой, тобой одной. Унынья моего
Ничто не мучит, не тревожит,
И сердце вновь горит и [любит]1 оттого,
Что не любить оно не может.

On Georgian hills
Language: English  after the Russian (Русский) 
On Georgian hills lies night's darkness;
The Aragvi roars before me.
I feel sorrowful and at ease;
My sadness is light;
My sadness is full of you,
You, only you...
My gloom is not disturbed or tortured by anything,
And my heart again burns and beats faster because
It cannot renounce love.
