Russian National Anthem (1798-1816) - Госпóдь в Сиóне

Коль славенъ нашъ Господь въ Сіонѣ,
Не можетъ изъяснить языкъ.
Великъ Онъ въ Небесахъ на тронѣ,
Въ былинкахъ на землѣ великъ.
Вездѣ, Господь, вездѣ Ты славенъ,
Въ нощи, во дни Сіяньемъ равенъ.
 
Тебя Твой Агнецъ златорунной
Въ себе изображаетъ намъ;
Псалтырью мы десятострунной
Тебѣ приносимъ ѳиміамъ.
Прими отъ насъ благодаренье,
Какъ благовонное куренье.
 
Ты солнцемъ смертныхъ освѣщаешь,
Ты любишь, Боже, насъ какъ чадъ,
Ты насъ трапезой насыщаешь
И зиждешь намъ въ Сiонѣ градъ.
Ты грѣшныхъ, Боже, посѣщаешь
И плотiю Твоей питаешь.
 
О Боже, во Твое селенье
Да внидутъ наши голоса,
Да взыдетъ наше умиленье,
Къ Тебѣ, какъ утрення роса!
Тебѣ въ сердцахъ алтарь поставимъ,
Тебя, Господь, поемъ и славимъ!

How Glorious is Our Lord in Zion

How glorious our Lord is on Zion,
The tongue can not express.
He's great in Heavens on the throne,
In blades of grass on earth He is great.
Oh Lord, Thou art Glorious everywhere,
At night, by day Thy shining is the same.
 
Thy lamb with golden fleece
Symbolizes Thee for us;
With ten-strings psaltery
We burn incense for Thee.
Accept our thanksgiving
As a fragrant offering.
 
Thou illume mortals by the sun,
Thou love us, God, as your children,
Thou satiate us with blessed meal
And create for us a city on Zion.
Thou, oh God, visit the sinners
And nourish them with Thy flesh.
 
Oh God, let our voices
Enter Thy dwelling,
And let our tender sense
Rise to Thee like morning dew!
For Thee with heart we’ll raise an altar,
For Thee we sing and glorifying!
 
Thanks!
