Praying, Healing, Life Giving Presence

August 24

Freedom splashed across our land
Like cool water
After the heat of subversion
Burned into our souls
Freedom’s newness
Bathed us in refreshment
We had so long forgotten
But lay in an eternal hope
Within our breasts
Hope languished as a dying ember
Smoldering dimly within every Ukrainian spirit
Fed by our longing for days that once were
Burn forever within us, Freedom
Raze to ashes the slavery we once knew
Let our new freedom last forever
In the brightness of an eternal glow
That will defy the blaze
Of a million suns
Let freedom’s radiance
Illumine Ukraine
As the Bohorodice did
When she walked across the steppes
Of our distant lands
Splash forever, Freedom
In the assurance that you are
An eternal Dnipro to cool our souls
