Prayer

This song is by Iris DeMent and appears on the album The Trackless Woods (2015).

Make me feverish, sleepless
And breathless
The years of prostration be long
0 Lord, take my child and companion
And destroy the sweet power of song

Thus I pray at each matins
And each vespers
After these many wearying dasy
That the storm cloud which lowers over Russia
May be changed to a nimbus ablaze

Written by:

Anna Akhmatova; translated by Babette Deutsch
