While the world is still turning, while the daylight is broad,
Oh Lord, pray, please give everyone what he or she hasn't got.
Give the timid a horse to ride, give the wise a bright head,
Give the fortunate money and about me don't forget !

While the world is still turning, Lord, You are omnipotent,
Let those striving for power wield it to their heart's content.
Give a break to the generous, at least for a day or two,
Pray, give Cain repentance, and remember me, too !

I know You are almighty, and I believe You are wise
Like a soldier killed in a battle believes he's in paradise.
Like every eared creature believes, oh, my Lord, in You,
Like we believe, doing something, not knowing what we do.

Oh Lord, oh my sweet Lord, my blue eyed Lord, You're good !
While the world is still turning, wondering, why it should,
While it has got sufficient fire and time, as You see,
Give each a little of something and remember about me !‎
As long, as the earth keeps turning,
As long, as the sun is above,
Almighty, please give to all of us
The things that we do not have:

Grant a mind to the wise man,
The coward, grant him a horse,
The happy, let him have money,
And don't forget truly yours.

So far, as the earth keeps turning,
Almighty, as is your wont,
Grant to the striving for power
Rule as much as he wants.

Grant a break to the generous
At least till the start of dusk.
Grant repentance to Cain
And don't forget truly yours.

I know that you have the power
I've faith in wisdom of yours,
Believing as does a dead soldier
That right in the Heaven he dwells.

As truly believes every being:
That all that you say is true,
As we go on believing,
Not knowing what we do.

O Lord of my life, Almighty,
Blond tresses and green of eye,
So far as the earth keeps turning
Although it still wonders, "why?”

So far, as it still has left some
time, and fire to keep its course,
Grant something to everybody
And don't forget truly yours.‎
