Poka zemlja ewe vertitsja,
Poka ewe jarok svet,
Gospodi, daj zhe ty kazhdomu,
Chego u nego net:

Mudromu daj golovu,
Truslivomu daj konja,
Daj schastlivomu deneg...
I ne zabud' pro menja.

Poka zemlja ewe vertitsja, —
Gospodi, tvoja vlast'! —
Daj rvuwemusja k vlasti
Navlastvovat'sja vslast',

Daj peredyshku wedromu,
Hot' do ishoda dnja,
Kainu daj raskajanie...
I ne zabud' pro menja.

Ja znaju: ty vse umeesh',
Ja veruju v mudrost' tvoju,
Kak verit soldat ubityj,
Chto on prozhivaet v raju,

Kak verit kazhdoe uho
Tihim recham tvoim,
Kak veruem I my sami,
Ne vedaja, chto tvorim!

Gospodi moj Bozhe,
Zelenoglazyj moj!
Poka zemlja ewe vertitsja,
I jeto ej stranno samoj,

Poka ej ewe hvataet
Vremeni I ognja,
Daj zhe ty vsem po nemnogu...
I ne zabud' pro menja
