Across the Fields
Russian Orthodox Christian song:
Across the vast fields,
across the deep seas.
Where angels are paving bridges,
decorating them with dark cloth.
Decorating them with dark cloth,
pinning it with golden nails.
And it was where
the Holy Mother was going.
And she was going right to the place,
where little angels were standing.
And the good news came in:
she gave birth to a son.
She was dressing him in silk swaddle.
Singing wonderful songs to him.
I'm lulling you, my little son.
I'm lulling you, my Lord.
