***************************

A performance by the Metropolitan Opera of the Ukraine’s Anthem (February 2022).  The sole singer without music, hand on heart, is Ukrainian.

Lyrics:

Nay, thou art not dead, Ukraine, see, thy glory’s born again,
And the skies, O brethren, upon us smile once more!
As in Springtime melts the snow, so shall melt away the foe,
And we shall be masters in our own home.

Soul and body, yea, our all, offer we at freedom’s call
We, whose forebears, and ourselves, proud Cossacks are!
