Alternate Author Name(s): Lermontov, Mikhail Yuryevich


WHEN life's oppressive hour is mine
And in my heart griefs crowd,
A prayer of wondrous power is mine
That I repeat aloud.

Blest is the strength that flows to me
In concords of sweet sound;
Past reckoning it blows to me
Divine enchantment round.

Doubt, like a burden, leaping then
Far from the spirit flies;
From words of faith and weeping then
How light, how light we rise!
