Ще не вмерла Українa ні слава, ні воля,

Згинуть наші воріженьки, як роса на сонці.
Запануєм і ми, браття, у своїй сторонці.

(Polish language)

"Not yet dead Ukraine”

Not yet dead Ukraine, nor glory, or freedom,
Even for us, brothers Ukrainians, fate will smile.
Our enemies will perish as the dew in the sun,
we will prevail brothers, in our country.

Душу, тіло ми положим за нашу свободу,
І покажем, що ми, браття, козацького роду.
Soul, we'll put our body for our freedom,
We will show, that we brothers, Kozak's race.
Станем, браття, в бій кривавий від Сяну до Дону,
В ріднім краю панувати не дамо нікому;
Чорне море ще всміхнеться, дід Дніпро зрадіє,
Ще у нашій Україні доленька наспіє.

Душу, тіло…

We the brothers will go to the bloody battle from San to the Don,
Reign in the house of fathers do not give anyone.
Black Sea will smile, Grandfather Dnieper will be happy,
In our Ukraine fate will change.

Soul, body…

A zavzyattya, праця щира свого ще докаже,
Ще ся волі в Україні піснь гучна розляже,
За Карпати відоб’ється, zgomonit steppes,
України слава стане помiж народами.

Душу, тіло…”

And persistence, enthusiastic work will show results
And boisterous song of freedom across the country will spill,
Far from the Carpathians bounces and through the steppes roar,
Glory of Ukraine go among nations.

Soul, body…”

Myhaylo Verbitsky – author of the music for the anthem of Ukraine was born in the city nadsańskiej village Ulucz, near from the Good of the nobles, in the District of Sanok in 1815 y. This village – nota bene – deserves a special command to all lovers of architecture monastyrskyi due to the town's wooden church, one of the oldest in Poland, ulokowaną on “splantowanym Summit” the steepest and wooded mountains – in the zamierzchłych era grodziska. This space is undoubtedly its genius loci. In turn, the grave of the composer is in the village Mills,the distant about a dozen kilometers from Radymna,just when Poland – Ukrainian border crossing point Korczowa – Krakowiec. Verbytsky was parochem of the Orthodox churches in Mills – so far, the existing. The grave of the composer – stosunkwo refurbished – przyozdobiony is the nagrobkiem in the shape of a Maltese lira. Rushing to Ukraine by the said border is a good stop for a while at the grave “pioneer of Ukrainian songs”, the enjoyment of the reflection on the fate of Ukraine.

    The most worth visiting and the village, and the grave of the composer. Thank you for interesting story!

I've heard of the novel from the village, from old people, who no longer live,that in Ukraine the peasants painted fences (It seems even the apartment) the color yellow and blue. One mean, that the House is Virgo, second while, that it is not (I don't remember that). If anyone knows something more on this topic? How I'm wrong I apologize.
