First Line: We know that our fate in the balance is cast
Last Line: Forever!
Alternate Author Name(s): Akhmatova, Anna


We know that our fate in the balance is cast
And we are the history makers.
The hour for courage has sounded at last
And courage shall never forsake us.

We do not fear death where the wild bullets screech,
Nor weep over homes that are gutted --
For we shall preserve you, your own Russian speech,
The glorious language of Russia!
Your pure and free utterance we shall bequeath
To new generations, we'll save you to breathe
Forever!
