Rachmaninov (1873-1943)

Christ is risen! Op 26 No 6 (1906)
(D. Merezhkovsky)

"Christ is risen!" they sing in church;
But I am sad…my soul is silent.
The world is full of blood and tears
and this hymn before the altars
Rings like a mockery.

Were He among us and could see,
what our glorious century has achieved,
how brothers hate one another,
how dishonoured is Man,
if in this glittering church
"Christ is risen!" He heard sung,
what bitter tears He would have shed,
Weeping before such a crowd!
