ʻOku Maʻongoʻonga ē Hoʻo ʻOfa

Lyrics

  1. 1. ʻOku maʻongoʻonga ē,
    Hoʻo ʻofa Sīsū ē,
    Taki au Ho Laumālié,
    Ke ʻoua naʻá ku hē,
    ʻAve ʻeku angahalá,
    Pea fakangalomiá
    Huhuʻi ē mahuʻingá,
    Ki hotau faʻahingá.
  2. 2. ʻOku maʻongoʻonga ē,
    Kuo hā ho ivi pē,
    Neongo ʻa e vaivaí,
    Ka ʻokú ke tataki,
    Hoku hala ki he ʻEikí,
    Hala ʻoku fāsiʻi,
    Huhuʻi ē mahuʻingá,
    Heʻikai hē ha tahá.
  3. 3. ʻOku maʻongoʻonga ē,
    Fakafiemālié,
    Ki he loto naʻe ʻauhē,
    ʻI he vanu ʻo e maté,
    Fakanonga ʻa e peaú,
    Ko ha lotomaumaú,
    Huhuʻi ē mahuʻingá,
    Nofo ai taʻe ngatá.
