Слеза дрожит в твоём ревнивом взоре
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Слеза дрожит в твоём ревнивом взоре...
О, не грусти, ты всё мне дорога!
Но я любить могу лишь на просторе,
мою любовь, широкую, как море,
вместить не могут, нет! вместить не могут жизни берега.

О, не грусти, мой друг, земное минет горе,
пожди ещё, неволя недолга.
В одну любовь мы все сольемся вскоре,
в одну любовь, широкую, как море,
что не вместят, нет! что не вместят земные берега.

The tears are trembling
Language: English  after the Russian (Русский) 
 I see a tear in your jealous sight...
 Oh, don't yearn; you're still dear to me!
 But I can love only in expanse,
 And my love, as wide as a sea,
 Cannot fit into the shores of life.
 
 Oh, don't yearn, my darling; the troubles of life will end soon,
 Just wait a bit more... the bondage is not long.
 We all will interflow into one Love soon,
 Into Love, which is as wide as a sea,
 Which cannot fit into the shores of life.
