Lyrics:

Упал я на границе в первый бой,
Закрыв ладонью рану на груди.
Сама земля стонала подо мной,
И жизнь уже казалась позади.

Припев:
И только тверже выходила из огня
Суровая, доверчивая Русь.
Ну как ты обходилась без меня?
А я вот без тебя не обойдусь.

Настойчиво звала меня труба,
Пылали обожженные края,
Под гусеницами падали хлеба,
В ружье вставал Родина моя.

И если буду вынужден опять
Надеть шинель и сквозь огонь шагать,
И если в битве сердце опалю, –
Я снова, как и прежде, повторю:

Припев

I fell at the border during my first battle
Covering the wound in my chest with my palm.
The earth itself was groaning under me
And life seemed to be already in the past.

Refrain:
And, harder yet, out of the fire came
Severe, trustful Russia.
Well, how did you get along without me?
But I won’t get along without you!

The trumpet called for me persistently,
Burnt lands were flaming,
Stalks were falling under tank treads
My Motherland was rising to arms!

And if again I will be compelled
To put on an overcoat and walk through the fire,
And if I will singe my heart in battle, –
Then I will repeat again, as before:

Refrain

    The words are moving, though I can’t open the music: I think I know from whence such stanzas came.

    May there never be a call for such sacrifice again!
