Even in our Ukraine, a little bit will ripen. Soul, 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, the destiny will change, body…
|A zavzyattya, праця щира свого ще докаже,
Ще ся волі в Україні піснь гучна розляже,
За Карпати відоб’ється, zgomonit steppes,
Ukraine's glory will be among the peoples. Soul, тіло…”

And boisterous song of freedom across the country will spill,
Far from the Carpathians bounces and through the steppes roar,
The glory of Ukraine will stand among the nations, body…”
