Anthem Lyrics

Shche ne vmerla Ukraina, ny slava, ny volja, Shche nam, brattja - ukraincy,

usmyzhnetjsja dolja, Zginutj nashi voryzhenjki, jak rosa na soncy, Zazhivemo y mi,

brattja, u svoij storoncy.

Chorus:

Dushu j tylo mi polozhim za nashu svobodu Y pokazhem, shcho mi, brattja, kozacjkogo

rodu.

Stanem brattja, vsi za volju, vyd Sjanu do Donu, V rydnym kraju panuvati ne damo

nykomu. Chorne more shche vsmykhnetjsja, dyd Dnypro zradye, Shche na nashyj Ukrainy

dolenjka dospye.

Chorus

A zavzjattja pracja shchira svogo shche dokazhe, Shche sja voly v Ukrainy pisnj guchna

rozljazhe. Za Karpati vydybetjsja, zgomonitj stepami, Ukraini slava stane pomizh garodami.

Chorus

Anthem Lyrics English

Ukraine is Not Yet Dead

Ukraine is not yet dead, nor its glory and freedom,

Luck will still smile on us brother-Ukrainians.

Our enemies will die, as the dew does in the sunshine,

and we, too, brothers, we'll live happily in our land.

We'll not spare either our souls or bodies to get freedom

and we'll prove that we brothers are of Kozak kin.

We'll rise up, brothers, all of us, from the Sain to the Don,

We won't let anyone govern in out motherland.

The Black Sea will smile yet, grandfather Dnipro will rejoice,

Yet in our Ukraine luck will be high.

Our persistence, our sincere toil will prove its rightness,

still our freedom's loud song will spread throughout Ukraine.

It'll reflect upon the Carpathians, will sound through the steppes,

and Ukraine's glory will arise among the people.
