Devuška pela
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Devuška pela v cerkovnom chore
O vsech ustalych v čužom kraju,
O vsech korabljach, ušedšich v more,
O vsech zabyvšich radost' svoju.

Tak pel eë golos letjaščij v kupol,
I luč sijal na belom pleče,
I každyj iz mraka smotrel i slušal,
Kak beloe plat'e pelo v luče.

I vsem kazalos', čto radost' budet,
Čto v tichoj zavodi vse korabli,
Čto na čužbine ustalye ljudi
Svetluju žizn' sebe obreli.

I golos byl sladok, i luč byl tonok,
I tol'ko vysoko u carskich vrat 
Pričastnyj tajnam, plakal rebënok
O tom, čto nikto ne pridët nazad.
