Shche ne vmerla Ukraina

From Academic Kids

"Ukraine's glory has not perished" (Ще не вмерла Україна) is the national anthem of Ukraine. The music was composed in 1863 by Mykhailo Verbytsky, a western Ukrainian composer and Catholic priest intended to accompany a patriotic poem written in 1862 by Pavlo Chubynsky, a prominent ethnographer in the Kyiv region.

In 1917, it became the anthem of the short-lived Ukrainian People's Republic.

In 1992, the Ukrainian parliament again adopted the song and lyrics as the national anthem. On March 6, 2003, the parliament adopted a new lyric, which has slightly modified Chubynsky's original words.

Ukrainian words

Ще не вмерла України і слава, і воля,
Ще нам, браття молодії, усміхнеться доля.
Згинуть наші воріженьки, як роса на сонці,
Запануєм і ми, браття, у своїй сторонці.

Chorus:
Душу, тіло ми положим за нашу свободу.
І покажем, що ми, браття, козацького роду.

Latin transliteration

Šče ne vmerla Ukrajiny i slava, i volĭa,
Šče nam, brattĭa molodiji, usmichnetĭsĭa dolĭa.
Zhynutĭ naši voriženĭky, jak rosa na sonci,
Zapanujem i my, brattĭa, u svojij storonci.

CHORUS(twice)
Dušu, tilo my položym za našu svobodu
I pokažem, ščo my, brattĭa, kozacĭkoho rodu.

English metaphrase

Ukraine's glory hasn't perished, nor her freedom
Upon us, fellow compatriots, fate shall smile once more.
Our enemies will vanish, like dew in the morning sun,
And we too shall rule, brothers, in a free land of our own.

CHORUS(twice)
We'll lay down our souls and bodies to attain our freedom,
And we'll show that we, brothers, are of the Cossack nation.

Ukrainian words (pre-2003)

Ще не вмерла Україна, ні слава, ні воля,
Ще нам, браття-українці, усміхнеться доля.
Згинуть наші воріженьки, як роса на сонці,
Заживемо і ми, браття, у своїй сторонці.

CHORUS
Душу й тіло ми положим за нашу сободу
І покажем, що ми, браття, козацького роду.

Станем браття, всі за волю, від Сяну до Дону
В ріднім краю панувати не дамо ні кому.
Чорне море ще всміхнеця, дід Дніпро зрадіє,
Ще на нашій Україні доленька доспіє.

CHORUS

А завзятта праця щира свого ще докаже,
Ще ся вомі в Україні піснь гучна розляже.
За Карпати відібється, згомонить степами,
України слава стане поміж гародами.

CHORUS

English transliteration (pre-2003)

Šče ne vmerla Ukrajina, ni slava, ni volĭa,
Šče nam, brattĭa-ukrajinci, usmichnetĭsĭa dolĭa.
Zhynutĭ naši voriženĭky, jak rosa na sonci,
Zažyvemo i my, brattĭa, u svojij storonci.

CHORUS
Dušu j tilo my položym za našu svobodu
I pokažem, ščo my, brattĭa, kozacĭkoho rodu.

Stanem, brattĭa, vsi za volĭu, vid Sĭanu do Donu
V ridnim kraju panuvaty ne damo nikomu.
Čorne more šče vsmichnetĭsĭa, did Dnipro zradije,
Šče na našij Ukrajini dolenĭka dospije.

CHORUS

A zavzĭatta pracĭa ščyra svoho šče dokaže,
Šče sĭa vomi v Ukrajini pisnĭ hučna rozlĭaže.
Za Karpaty vidibĭetĭsĭa, zhomonytĭ stepamy,
Ukrajiny slava stane pomiž harodamy.

CHORUS

English translation (pre-2003)

Ukraine has not perished, neither her glory, nor freedom,
Upon us, fellow--Ukrainians, fate shall smile once more.
Our enemies will vanish, like dew in the morning sun,
And we too shall dwell, brothers, in a free land of our own.

CHORUS
We'll lay down our souls and bodies to attain our freedom,
And we'll show that we, brothers, are of the Kozak nation.
(repeat chorus)

We'll stand together for freedom, from the Sian to the Don,
We will not allow others to rule in our motherland.
The Black Sea will smile and grandfather Dnipro will rejoice,
For in our own Ukraine fortune shall flourish again.

CHORUS

Our persistence and our sincere toils will be rewarded,
And freedom's song will resound throughout all of Ukraine.
Echoing off the Carpathians, and rumbling across the steppes,
Ukraine's fame and glory will be known among all nations.

CHORUS
