Text heard on Sample:
Renata: Mne bylo vosem' let,
kogda on javilsja pervyj raz:
v solnecnom luce,
v belosnezhnoj odezhde, angel,
ves' ognennyj, ves' ozarennyj.
Lico ego sijalo,
glaza golubye, kak nebo,
volosy slovno iz tonkogo zolota.
Ognennyj angel! Ognennyj angel!
Ognennyj angel!
I nazval on sebja
Madiel', Madiel', Madiel'


Renata: I was eight years old
when he first appeared:
in a ray of sunlight,
in a show-white robe, an angel,
all fiery and lit up.
His face shone,
his eyes blue as the sky,
his hair like pure gold.
The fiery angel! The fiery angel!
The fiery angel!
And he called himself
Madiel, Madiel, Madiel.
