The Ukrainian Chorus Dumka of New York performed a tribute performance to Ukraine amid the ongoing Russian invasion on Saturday Night Live, February 26th. The link to the performance, A Prayer for Ukraine, is below with the English translation.
English language lyrics of the song: Lord, oh the Great and Almighty,
Protect our beloved Ukraine, Bless her with freedom and light
Of your holy rays.
With learning and knowledge enlighten Us, your children small,
In love pure and everlasting Let us, oh Lord, grow.
We pray, oh Lord Almighty,
Protect our beloved Ukraine, Grant our people and country
All your kindness and grace.
Bless us with freedom, bless us with wisdom, Guide into kind world,
Bless us, oh Lord, with good fortune
For ever and evermore.
Our prayers remain with them.
