Fyodor Tyutchev - Нам не дано предугадать... (English translation)

Russian

Нам не дано предугадать...

Нам не дано предугадать,
Как слово наше отзовется,-
И нам сочувствие дается,
Как нам дается благодать...

God Did Not Let Us Second-Guess...

God did not let us second-guess
How our word would come back, slanted, -
And empathy to us is granted
The same way with God's grace we're blessed...
