The Mother of Light, Love and Good song by Valery Malyshev
(an unrhymed translation from Russian)
Mother of God, Mother of God, the Mother of light, love and good, You are my hope, Mother of God, and the time of miraculous insights. Mother of God, Mother of God, I love You so much with all my soul, You are my star, You are my dawn, You are a ray of light in the earthly life.
You are Our Lady of the Don, Our Lady of Kazan, Our Lady of the Sign – all Your images are with me. You are the Theotokos of Vladimir, Our Lady of Valaam, and Derzhavnaya above the land. You are the heavenly joy of all the sorrowful, You are the punishment for all the killed, Your are the Purest Bride of all virgins, You are my grief and love.
Pray for Your children, o Mother of God, before Your Son, Forgive us all, o Mother of God, and stand up for us at the Last Judgement. In the Moscow land, in Belarus, in the Ukrainian land, From the River Amur to New Russia churches are dedicated to You.
Domes, domes in the blue sky above, bell towers are so many I cannot count. Ringing of the bells rises into the blue sky, Mother Rus is waking up.
Mother of God, Mother of God, You are the time of miraculous insights, You are my hope, Mother of God, the Mother of light, love and good.
