Чуго ж руки поскладали?

Чуго ж руки поскладали?
Ще не час відпочивати,
Не всі ще пережитки зруйнували,
Треба цьому раду дати.

Рух уперед зараз необхіжний.
Не стоятимемо десь на краю!
Хай буде успіх плідний,
Важливо розвивати перемогу свою.

However hard it is, go on

However hard it is, go on.
I know problems weigh much,
But to win you were born;
Your kind heart makes you strong as such!

It’s never too late to improve
When you are ready to fight,
Your deeds will prove,
You will enjoy a victorious light.

But now be patient to wait, let the day chase night.
What cannot be cured,
Should be endured.
A climber starts from the bottom to reach the height.

Life is good

Life is good
Because it’s a flow.
It is like trees in a wood:
Never the same wherever we go.

Where there is no loss,
There is no gain.
Misfortunes remind about victory’s worth.
No exercises is starvation for brain.

A load is needed to make steel from muscles.
Without work a good gear rustles.
So, life is great forever!
Live and learn, be clever.

You are going to win

iss046-e-3699
You are going to win,
Triumphant music will din.
I’m sure ’cause God is with you.
Your eye will enjoy the morning dew.

Believe ’cause you are strong,
Believe, love is never wrong.
Do not hesitate
And God will help at this rate.

Разом ми покажемо силу

Разом ми покажемо силу,
А поодинці – слабкіші.
Інші будуть даватися диву,
Якщо вгодно буде Богові і Він поставить нас вище.

Не забуваймо Бога і тоді
Щоб наші подовжились дні,
Щоб у злагоді жити,
Щоб всякого ближнього любити!

Отже, разом ставаймо;
Разом Богові співаймо.
Подяку щиру складаймо,
Разом добром зло перемагаймо!

Strengthen your heart

Strengthen your heart
And wait on the Lord with patience.
He crowns with victory your finish and blesses your start.
He makes your name known among nations.

Vain is the help of man

Vain is the help of man.
Through God we will show strength.
It is useless to rely on what man can.
If you want to enjoy victories at length,

Rely on God in all.
He beautifies your head with a crown;
He protects from a fall;
He dresses you with a PhD gown!
