Reign over us further as You did previously,
And, fortifying Your throne – the money box,
Hear our voices in prayer!
Our anti–Soviet front is united:
The Orthodox priest, the rabbi,
And the Catholic supreme pontiff,
We are all apostles of capitalism!
Our god is Capital and its command,
Is to launch an attack on the Soviet Union!
Comrade! To all of these wretched vermin,
No matter how much they try to put the fear [of God] in us,
We, in response to their “crusade”, answer,
That the only thing left of them will be dust!
