It is Holy Saturday in Ukraine, Lord,

the place the folks mourn your demise on the Cross

and the lack of their little children

in a tragic and mindless conflict…


Innocence is crucified, as soon as once more,

by the sins of those that fail to observe

the trail of your Phrase and your legislation…


On the foot of this cross there stands a person,

just like the Roman centurion way back:

not a disciple, not a believer, 

however one who is aware of and faithfully follows:

    the trail of fact,

    the phrase of justice, 

    and the legislation of affection 

Even Volodymyr hopes for a resurrection, Lord:

for demise to be vanquished and life to triumph

in a harvest of justice and a victory for peace…


Don’t disappoint us, Lord,

however stand up as soon as once more, we pray,

to save your folks and set them free

to stay within the peace 

you have received for us all…
