Dostig ja vishei vlasti, Boris's aria from Boris Godunov

Dostig ja vishei vlasti 
shestoj uzh god ja tzarsvuiu spakoino. 
No schastia niet moiej izmuchennoj dushè. 
Naprasno mnie kudiesgniki suliàt 
dni dolghie, dni vlasrti biezmiatiezhnoj. 
Gni zizn' , gni vlast' ,gni zlavi 
obal'shchinia, gni kliki tolpij 
mienia nie veseliàt. 
V sembiè svoiej ja mnil najtì atradu, 
gatovil docheri vieselij brachnij pir, 
moiej tsarievna , golubkie chistoj. 
Kak buria smiert unosit zhenicha.... 
Tiazhkà diesnitza grosnavo Sudii, 
uzhasien prigavor dushe priestupnoj. 
Okriest lish' tma i mrak nieproghliadnij; 
chotia miel'knul bi luch atradi. 
J skorbiu siertze polno, 
toskuiet, tamitsia duch ustalij, 
kakoj ta triepet tainij.... 
Fsio zhdiosh' chevo to... 
Malitvoj tioploj k ugodnikam 
bozhim ja mnil zaglushit dushì stradanja... 
V vielichi i blieske vlasti biezgragnishnoj, 
Rusi vladika, u gnich ja slioz prasil mnie v 
utieshenie. 
A tam danos, bajar kramoghli, 
kozni Litvi i tainii padkopi, 
glad i mor i trus i razarienie... 
Zlavno dikii zvier rishchet liud zachumlionnij, 
galodnaja, biednaja stognit Rus'! ... 
J v liutam gorie nisposlannom bogom, 
za tazhkij moj griech v ispitanie, 
vinoj vsiech zol mienia nariekaiut, 
klianut a plashchadiach imia Borisa! 
J dazhe son bezhit j v sumrakie nochi 
ditia akrovavlionnaie fstaiet. 
Ochi pilaiut, stismuv ruchionki, 
moglit pashchadi... 
J nie bilo pashchadi ! 
Strazhnaja rana ziiaiet, 
slishitsia krik iego priedsmiernij... 
O, Gospodi Bozhe moi!
