Devushka pela
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Devushka pela v cerkovnom xore
O vsex ustaly'x v chuzhom krayu,
O vsex korablyax, ushedshix v more,
O vsex zaby'vshix radost` svoyu.

Tak pel eyo golos letyashhij v kupol,
I luch siyal na belom pleche,
I kazhdy'j iz mraka smotrel i slushal,
Kak beloe plat`e pelo v luche.

I vsem kazalos`, chto radost` budet,
Chto v tixoj zavodi vse korabli,
Chto na chuzhbine ustaly'e lyudi
Svetluyu zhizn` sebe obreli.

I golos by'l sladok, i luch by'l tonok,
I tol`ko vy'soko u czarskix vrat 
Prichastny'j tajnam, plakal rebyonok
O tom, chto nikto ne pridyot nazad.
