But from the river the town’s open quite,
Because the Turks could never be persuaded
A Russian vessel e’er would heave in sight;
And such their creed was, till they were invaded,
When it grew rather late to set things right.
But as the Danube could not well be waded,
They look’d upon the Muscovite flotilla,
And only shouted, “Allah!” and “Bis Millah!”

Но в город был открыт свободный вход
Со стороны Дуная, из расчета,
Что в реку флот российский не войдет —
Ни смелости не станет, ни охоты;
А потому и войско и народ
При виде неожиданного флота
В испуге закричали: «Бисмилла!»,
Предчувствуя, что гибель подошла.
