Forgive God!

I shall wash myself with the holy water
And stand praying at the icon.
I ask God to absolve Russia from sins.
I’m looking at a silver cross
But see crucified old Russia,
And I’m praying with penitence and a bow to God
In the hope of forgiveness.

God, please forgive us for everything:
For the crosses that were pulled off the churches,
For the killed tzar,
And for the burnt icons…
God, please forgive us for everything!

I’m feeding pigeons near the temple
And looking in hope at the sky.
Great God, please grant us absolution
And take Russia off the crucifix.
Let us restore the defiled temples,
And their domes will shine at down.
Just give us the hope of forgiveness,
And our country will become powerful again.

God, please forgive us for everything:
For the crosses that were pulled off the churches,
For the killed Czar,
And for the burnt icons…
God, please forgive us for everything!
