О Царь и Бог мой! Слово силы Во время оно Ты сказал, И сокрушен был плен могилы, И Лазарь ожил и возстал. Молю да слово силы грянет, Да скажешь: встань! душе моей, И мертвая из гроба встанет, И выйдёт в свет Твоих лучей; И оживет, и величавый Её хвалы раздастся глас, Тебе, сиянью Отчей славы, Тебе умершему за нас!

Oh my Tsar and Lord! The word of power You pronounced in ancient time Crushed the grave's imprisonment And Lazarus came back to life and has been resurrected. I pray that word of power will thunder again, So that You'll say: arise! to my soul, And the dead one will rise from the grave, And will appear in the light of Your radiance, And will live again, and the majestic voice Of its praise will sound, to You, To the glory of Your Father, to You – who died for us!
