about

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.

lyrics

Georgian:
წმიდაო ღმერთო,
წმიდაო ძლიერო,
წმიდაო უკუდავო,
შეგვიწყალენ ჩვენ

Transliterated:
Tsmindao Ghmerto
Tsmindao Zliero
Tsmindao Ukvdao
Shegvitskalen chven.

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