The Prayer Of François Villon

As long as the Earth keeps turning,
As long as the daylight is bright,
Lord, give us mortals
What each of us lacks,
Give common sense to the brainy,
A war horse to the shy, 
Give lots of cash to a beggar ,
And please don't miss this bard.

As long as the Earth keeps turning,
Lord, make it thy will to give to the power -hungry a long enough rule to heal, 
Give a break to the generous before the dusk cools the heat,
Give a gift of remorse to Kain,
And don't miss me please.

I do have faith in your powers, 
I believe your wisdom prevails,
The way fallen  soldier knows that the heaven awaits.
The way each ear is
Keen on your reassuring word,
Even in our oblivion,
We keep  believing in God.

Oh my merciful Father, your sea-green eyes always on us,
As long as the Earth keeps turning much to its own surprise,
And there is still time to go and flame to brighten it up,
Give a little to everyone,
And please don't miss this bard.

The Prayer Of François Villon (Molitva)

Poka Zemlya esche vertitsya
Poka esche yarok svet
Gospodi, day zhe tyi kazhdomu
Chego u nego net:
Umnomu day golovu
Truslivomu day konya
Day schastlivomu deneg
I ne zabud pro menya

Poka Zemlya esche vertitsya
Gospodi, tvoya vlast!
Day rvuschemusya k vlasti
Navlastvovatsya vslast
Day peredyishku schedromu
Hot do ishoda dnya
Kainu day raskayanie
I ne zabud pro menya

Ya veryu: tyi vse umeesh
Ya veruyu v mudrost tvoyu
Kak verit soldat ubityiy
Chto on prozhivaet v rayu
Kak verit kazhdoe uho
Tihim recham tvoim
Kak veruem i myi sami
Ne vedaya, chto tvorim
Gospodi moy Bozhe
Zelenoglazyiy moy

Poka Zemlya esche vertitsya
I eto ey stranno samoy
Poka ey esche hvataet
Vremeni i ognya
Day zhe tyi vsem ponemnogu
I ne zabud pro menya
Day zhe tyi vsem ponemnogu
I ne zabud pro menya
