Ditja, kak cvetok ty prekrasna, 'My child you are as beautiful as a flower' Op.8 No.2

Ditja, kak cvetok ty prekrasna, 'My child you are as beautiful as a flower'

Ditja, kak cvetok ty prekrasna,
Svetla, i chista, i mila.
Smotrju na tebja, i ljubujus',
I snova dusha ozhila...
Okhotno b tebe na golovku
Ja ruki svoi vozlozhil;
Prosja chtoby Bog tebja vechno
Prekrasnoj i chistoj khranil.
Based on a poem by Heinrich Heine

Ditja, kak cvetok ty prekrasna, 'My child you are as beautiful as a flower'

My child, you are as beautiful as a flower,
As bright, and pure and sweet.
I look at you admiringly,
And once again, my soul is filled with lifeā€¦
Willingly I would place my hands
On your dear little head;
Asking that God should keep you
Beautiful and pure forever.
