My icon is my motherland,
And the whole world is its icon-stand.
Bright mounts and valleys
Are shared with God

Today our freedom
Sings to the glory of future,
The dawn star rises up
And shines out between two seas.

Praise be to liberty,
Praise be to liberty!

Transliteration of the Georgian lyrics[edit]

The following is a reasonably accurate, though unscientific, transliteration. It does not fully account for the complex Georgian consonants.

Chemi khatia samshoblo,
Sakhate mteli kveqana,
Ganatebuli mta-bari
Tsilnaqaria Ghmerttana.
Tavisupleba dghes chveni
Momavals umghers didebas,
Tsiskris varskvlavi amodis
Da or zghvas shua brtsqindeba.
Dideba tavisuplebas,
Tavisuplebas dideba!
