Fakatapuʻi Au

Lyrics

  1. 1. Fakatapuʻi au,
    ke u holi lahi.
    Afe mei he kovi,
    ʻo faʻa kātaki.
    Ke lahi ʻa e tui,
    ki he Huhuʻi.
    Peá u ngāue lahi,
    lotu moʻoni.
  2. 2. Ke lahi ʻa e ʻofa,
    falala ai pē.
    Ki he Fakamoʻui,
    ke lahi ange.
    ʻA e lotomamahi,
    Ho kalusefai.
    ʻO angavaivai,
    naʻa ngalo Ia.
  3. 3. Fakamaʻa au,
    maʻu ai pē.
    Ke u loto melino,
    holi ki ʻapi.
    ʻI Ho puleʻanga,
    tokoniʻi au.
    Pea moʻui ai ho-
    ku Laumālie.
