by Nikolai Platonovich Ogaryov (1813 - 1877)

Na son grjadushchij
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Nochnaja t'ma bezmolvije prinosit
I k otdykhu zovjot menja.
Pora, pora! pokoja telo prosit,
Dusha ustala v vikhre dnja.

Molju tebja, pred snom grjadushchim, bozhe:
Daj ljudjam mir; blagoslovi 
Mladenca son, i nishchenskoje lozhe,
I sljozy tikhije ljubvi!

Prosti grekhu, na zhgucheje stradan'e
Uspokoitel'no dokhni,
I vse tvoi pechal'nye sozdan'ja
Khot' snoviden'em obmani!
