Holy God,
Holy Mighty,
Holy Immortal,

The word Trisagion is Greek for “three-holy.” The prayer expands the “Holy, holy, holy” of Isaiah 6:13 and Revelation 4:8.

In original Greek:

Ἅγιος ὁ Θεός, Ἅγιος ἰσχυρός, Ἅγιος ἀθάνατος, ἐλέησον ἡμᾶς.

Agios o Theos, Agios ischyros, Agios athanatos, eleison imas.
