Xristos voskres
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Povsyudu blagovest gudit,
Iz vsex cerkvej narod valit.
Zarya glyadit uzhe s nebes...
Xristos voskres! Xristos voskres!

S polej uzh snyat pokrov snegov,
I reki rvutsya iz okov,
I zeleneet blizhny'j les...
Xristos voskres! Xristos voskres!

Vot prosy'paetsya zemlya,
I odevayutsya polya,
Vesna idyot, polna chudes,
Xristos voskres!  Xristos voskres!
