Georgian. An Orthodox hymn arranged by Zakaria Paliashvili (1871-1933), who has been called the Founder of Georgian classical music. We learned this song while singing in the Yale Slavic Chorus, with many thanks to the Kavkasia Trio for pronunciation and masterclasses.


წმიდაო ღმერთო,

Holy God,
Holy Mighty,
Holy Immortal,
Have mercy on us.
