Otrada smerti strazhdushhim dana. Vy' pobeleli, stranniki, ot py'li, Sredi vragov, v chuzhix krayax vy' by'li. No vot vam otdy'x, mir i tishina. Gora poldnevny'm solncem sozhzhena, Ruslo Kedrona vetry' issushili. No v prax otczov vy' posoxi slozhili, Vas obrela rodimaya strana. V nej spyat czari, proroki i levity'. V blazhenny'e obiteli eya Vsex, chto v chuzhbine ne by'li ubity', Sbiraet miloserdy'j Sudiya. Po zhestkim sklonam kamenny'e plity' Stoyat raskry'toj Knigoj By'tiya.
