Sacred song heals the sick spirit…  (1834) 
by Evgeny Baratynsky, translated by Dmitri Smirnov (D. Smirnov-Sadovsky)

Written in 1834. Included into the collection of poems 1835. See the source: [1].

Sacred song heals the sick spirit.
The mysterious power of harmony
Will expiate a heavy delusion
And tame a revolting desire.
The soul of a singer expressed with a concordance
Is freed from all its woes,
And the sacred poetry will give purity
And peace to its companion.
c. 1834, publ. 1835, transl. 2006
