Helpless children of the night
Groping blindly for the right,
The flame of hope is near!
What’s that light that is beckoning;
Come, come, come, come!
Take your new day of reckoning!
What new fire is enthralling you?
Soul of Russia is calling you!
On! On! Up the hill of hope and glory,
Follow, follow the Flame!
