  1. 1. Tau fakaake ʻetau fononga,
    ʻO laka atu
    Kae ʻoua ke hāʻele mai ʻa Sīsū,
    Pea tokangaʻi Hono finangaló,
    Ke tau fakaʻaonga,
    Hotau ngaahi foaki mei he ʻOtua,
    Hotau ngaahi foaki mei he ʻOtuá.
  2. 2. ʻE mole atu vave ʻa e taimí,
    ʻE toe siʻi pe
    -a hā mai ʻa e Fakamoʻuí,
    ʻOfa ke tau pehē ʻI heʻene hā maí,
    Kuo fai ʻo ʻosi
    ʻA e ngāue kuo tuku mai kiate au,
    ʻA e ngāue kuo tuku mai kiate au.
  3. 3. ʻOfa ke tau maʻu ʻi hotau ʻEiki,

    mālō kuo lelei ʻa hoʻo ngāué,
    Ke ke haʻu ki heni Pea nofo mai,
    Ki hoku nofoʻa
    Ko e monūʻia ʻi heʻeku Tamai,
    Ko e monūʻia ʻi heʻeku Tamai.
