Здесь хорошо... 
Взгляни, вдали
Огнём горит река;
Цветным ковром луга легли,
Белеют облака.
Здесь нет людей...
Здесь тишина...
Здесь только Бог да я.
Цветы, да старая сосна,
Да ты, мечта моя!

Ici il fait bon
Language: French (Français)  after the Russian (Русский) 
Ici il fait bon...
Regarde, au loin
La rivière est en feu ;
Les prairies sont des tapis de couleurs,
Les nuages sont blancs.
Ici il n'y a personne...
Ici c'est le silence...
Ici il n'y a que Dieu et moi,
Les fleurs, le vieux pin,
Et toi, mon rêve !
