You know what they say, Father:
God is too high
and the Tsar's too far away.
The Tsar is here in Petersburg
to bless the troops.
He's staying at the Winter Palace.
Thousands of us will march
there on Sunday morning.
I'll go to him on the balcony...
...and read this:
"Sire...
...we working men and
inhabitants of St. Petersburg...
...come to you, sire,
to seek...
...for truth, justice
and protection.
Only you can
hear our prayers.
And if you do not...
...we shall die...
...here on this square...
...before your palace."
God is with you.
St. George will guard you.
St. George will guard you.
