Jan Skácel - The Day Suitable for Dying
(Den vhodný k umírání)

In the hour of our death
When the day suitable for dying
Comes
We will pluck the cockle weed
From the spring of childhood
We will lift a holy picture
And hardly touch the water
From the spring of childhood
In the hour of our death
When the day comes
The day suitable for dying
The humble leprous king will smile
