Ukraine's Glory and Freedom Have Not Yet Perished

That happens to be the opening line of Ukraine's national anthem.


See here for the whole text, though I'm not wild about the translation of the remaining lines.

UPDATE: Thanks to my father Vladimir, who speaks Ukrainian, I have this translation of the first paragraph and the refrain:

Ukraine's glory and freedom have not yet perished
Upon us, young brothers, fate will yet smile
Like dew in the sun, our enemies will vanish,
And we will be masters of our own land.

We will lay down our bodies and souls for our freedom
And we will show, brothers, that we are heirs to the Cossacks.
