lyrics

When I am dead, bury me
In my beloved Ukraine
My tomb upon a grave mound high
Amid the spreading plain

So that the fields, the boundless steppes
The Dnieper's plunging shore
My eyes could see, my ears could hear
The mighty river roar

When from Ukraine the Dnieper bears
Into the deep blue sea
The blood of foes ... then will I leave
These hills and fertile fields

I'll leave them all and fly away
To the abode of God
And then I'll pray .... But till that day
I nothing know of God

Oh bury me, then rise ye up
And break your heavy chains
And water with the tyrants' blood
The freedom you have gained

And in the great new family
The family of the free
With softly spoken, kindly word
Remember also me

I'll leave them all and fly away
To the abode of God
And then I'll pray .... But till that day
I nothing know of God

Як умру, то поховайте
Мене на могилі,
Серед степу широкого,
На Вкраїні милій,
Щоб лани широкополі,
І Дніпро, і кручі
Було видно, було чути,
Як реве ревучий.
Як понесе з України
У синєє море
Кров ворожу... отойді я
І лани, і гори —
Все покину і полину
До самого бога
Молитися... а до того
Я не знаю бога.
