Through all your life length

Have courage, my friend,
In any situation till the very end!
Let your heart not faint,
Remember people who are saint!

God is with you!
You will break through.
Have courage and strength
Through all your life length.

Your time will come

Banff im Winter
Your time will come
Because you can endure.
Your time will come,
Your heart is pure.

Grace and love

Once I got ill.
God showed grace and love then too.
I let the children in the line go first and sat still;
I did not feel worse, true.

When it was time to pay,
It turned out I had no cash.
The receptionist agreed to wait a day.
So, I called a taxi – it came in a flash.

I asked to lend me money –
The driver agreed
With an expression in heart so sunny,
Leaving no place for greed.

Thank You, Father, for all these kind deeds
And for saying to ask to be given!
You look after all our needs.
Let us remember Your words wherever we may be driven.

A family and a nation must be united

moraine_lake_alberta_canada_(19253992040)
A family and a nation must be united –
That way, their journey will be lighted,
Their obstacles will be overcome;
To their enemies, they will be able to say, “Come, get some!”

In all, however, they must praise God with hearts sincere –
They will go far, they won’t go near;
They will achieve what they want and more;
They will get all they need and will keep some goods in store.

Христос народився!

Upper_Kananaskis_lake_Alberta_Canada_winter_2017_(39430180532)
Христос народився, славімо Його!
У пісні, думці, ділі –
З любов’ю, мудрістю, сміливістю – Пана всього.
Бог прийшов до нас у тілі!

Слава Богу заспіваймо.
Радістю, надією серця укріпляймо.
Христос народився від Марії Діви –
Хай подячно з веселістю залунають співи!

Whatever happens, stand!

Whatever happens, stand!
The relief is near.
However hard to understand,
Open your heart to hear.

Your faith and hope, and love
Will bring you to the top.
From hand you’ll feed a dove,
But now move on, no need to stop.

Зірка над вертепом яскраво засяє

Upper_Kananaskis_lake_(36000875896)
Зірка над вертепом яскраво засяє,
Зорі на небі, холод на дворі.
Веселий дзвін у серці лунає,
Місяць про Радість Велику звіщає.

Це – Різдво, свято дивовижне,
Шлях до казки, до мрії,
Христове Різдво, справжнє, не книжнє:
Радіє усе, небо й земля, верхнє та нижнє.

У цей вечір святковий
Усе інакшим стає.
Кожен має свій шлях винятковий,
Не потрібен абзац додатковий.

Та сьогодні Господь єднає серця!
Як сніг хай білішає чиста душа,
Не на показ, не на раз, не для червоного слівця.
Різдво, – Україно, хай не жаліє митець олівця!
