A Russian Lent Song:
Translated with Google-Translator:
Fasting with prayer warms my heart ,
Above the earth chimes.
Reverend Father, our Andrew ,
Bitterly read your holy canon .
That soul from crying become
About damned past days ?
Cried my heart and lips :
- God, have mercy , do not reject me !
Oh, Adam , the first human ,
Fell in heaven and cried endlessly .
Cry, the soul, and you are standing far away
From his Lord and Creator .
Oh, soul , until damned ?
Likened Eve fell into sin.
Bring same now Repentance
God and Lord of all .
Was banished from Eden worthy
For only one commandment Adam .
Oh, soul , with you where we will be ,
All violating many years ?
Oh, soul , what is your hope?
Fasting and cry weapons take .
Clothed in torn clothes,
In those ancient serpent istkal advice .
Oh, the soul , the end too far off ,
Awake at the doors Judge .
We are with you justify nothing,
What are you contrition oh my soul ?
Me again closed water
Life passes like incense smoke.
Joseph was sold fraternity ,
Thou, soul , sells evil .
Shot by an arrow of adultery
Then David arose but repentance .
Well you , soul , lived crafty since childhood,
Do evil , forgetting Christ.
Oh, soul , my soul , arise,
Near the end , and have no tears.
Cry and heart, and lips
Yes , Jesus Christ have mercy on thee !
Dropping to the innocence of the dove ,
All the sins of the Blessed to fall down .
Not forsake omnipotent Queen ,
Seest our suffering and our misfortune .
Oh, Andrew , most blessed Father ,
Cretan shepherd , I'll sing .
Yes escape new sins
True worshipers of your memory .
March 24, 1987 ( on the Canon of St.. Andrew of Crete )
