ʻA e Kau Tau ʻa e ʻOtua

ʻI he loto-mālohi

1. ʻA e kau tau ʻa e ʻOtua,

Fuka hele mo e pā,

Laka mo ikuna tau

pē mo loto-toʻá,

ʻO fakatē ʻa e kau sō-

tia loto tahá,

muimui he takimuʻa

Pea hiva fiefiá.

[Chorus]

Kuo lava kuo ʻosi

ʻEne fai e huhuʻí,

Kuo lava kuo ʻosí

Kuo lava, kuo ʻosi, Fai ʻe Sī-

sū ko hotau ʻEikí.

2. Kuo laka mai ʻa e fili,

Pea tau ʻa e ʻEikí,

ʻIkai ha holomui

tau ke ʻikunaíi,

Ui e taki Mou tui

pea nau fefanahí,

ʻO mavava aí.

[Chorus]

Kuo lava kuo ʻosi

ʻEne fai e huhuʻí,

Kuo lava kuo ʻosí

Kuo lava, kuo ʻosi, Fai ʻe Sī-

sū ko hotau ʻEikí.

3. Ka ʻosi ʻa e fepakí,

Fakalāngilangiʻi

Pea fiefia aí.

[Chorus]

Kuo lava kuo ʻosi

ʻEne fai e huhuʻí,

Kuo lava kuo ʻosí

fai ʻe Kalaisí;

Kuo lava, kuo ʻosi, Fai ʻe Sī-

sū ko hotau ʻEikí.
