Горные вершины
Language: Russian (Русский)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Горные вершины
Спят во тьме ночной.
Тихие долины
Полны свежей мглой.
Не пылит дорога,
Не дрожат листы.
Подожди немного,
Отдохнёшь и ты.

Les cimes des montagnes
Language: French (Français)  after the Russian (Русский) 
Les cimes des mon-ta-gnes
Dorment dans la nuit sombre.
Les prés, les cam-pa-gnes
Sont plon-gés dans l'ombre.
Nul ne foule le che-min,
Nul bruit a-len-tour.
At-tends un peu, de-main
Ce se-ra ton tour.

Note: the '-' characters correspond to the melismas.
