I arise today, through
The strength of heaven,

The radiance of the moon,
The splendor of fire,

The swiftness of wind,
The depth of the sea,
The stability of the earth,
The firmness of rock.

Thursday This Rachmaninoff song is so beautiful, also short enough, that I’ve given you two versions.

Eglise Gutierrez sings Rachmaninov Zdes/khorosho (2:02)

How peaceful it is here
Look! far away the river blazes like fire
The meadows are carpets of color
The clouds are radiant white
There's no one here
Silence reigns I am alone with the Lord,
the flowers, the old pine tree
And you, my dream of delight!

And here is Russian soprano Anna Netrebko – Zdes’ khorosho, Op.21, No.7 (Rachmaninov)
