Courage

We know, it now lies in the balance
And that happens now.
The hour of courage has struck our local,
And the courage not abandon us.
Do not be scared to go under the bullets of the dead,
Not bitter homeless,-
And we will preserve you, Russian speech,
The Great Russian Word.
Free and you swept clean,
And our grandchildren, and save from captivity
evermore!
23 February 1942
