Уймитесь, волнения страсти!
Засни, безнадежное сердце!
Я плачу, я стражду, -
Душа утомилась в разлуке;
Я стражду, я плачу, -
Не выплакать горя в слезах.
Напрасно надежду мне счастье гадает,
Не верю, не верю обетам коварным!
Разлука уносит любовь.

Как сон неотступный и грозный,
Мне снится соперник счастливый,
И тайно и злобно
Кипящая ревность пылает,
И тайно и злобно
Оружия ищет рука.
Напрасно измену мне ревность гадает,
Не верю, не верю коварным наветам.
Я счастлив, ты снова моя.
Минует печальное время, -
Мы снова обнимем друг друга,
И страстно и жарко забьется воскресшее сердце,
И страстно и жарко с устами сольются уста.

Language: English  after the Russian (Русский) 
Be stopped, restlesness of passion!
Fall asleep, hopeless heart!
I weep, I suffer,
The soul is tired of separation;
I suffer, I  weep,
Not to sob the grief into tears.
In vain hope to me happiness looks,
I do not believe, I do not believe insidious vows!
Separation takes away love.
Like a sleep persistent and terrible,
I dream of my happy rival,
And secretly and maliciously
boiling jealousy blazes,
And secretly and maliciously
my hand searches for a weapon.
In vain jealousy brings treason to me,
I do not believe, I do not believe the insidious slander.
I am happy: you are mine again.
Sadly the time passes,
we again embrace each other,
And passionately and hotly my happy heart throbs again,
And passionately and hotly our lips melt together.
