ʻE Tamai Taʻengata

ʻI he loto-faʻalotu

1. ʻE Tamai Taʻengata,

ʻAfio ʻi langi.

Pea tāpuaki.

Kiate kimautolu.

Pea mau manatuʻí,

ʻA e feilaulau tapu.

2. ʻOfa maʻongoʻonga,

ʻOfa ʻa e ʻOtua.

ʻA hono mahuʻinga,

Ki he kau pōpula,

Ka naʻe teʻia Ia,

Ke tau moʻui ai.

Pea te tau toe ʻilo,

Hono puleʻanga.

4. ʻIkai ngata ʻa e poto,

Palani tapuhā,

ʻAloʻi ki māmani,

Pea hoko ʻo tangata,

Maʻu ʻa e nāunaú.

Pekia nāunauʻiá,

Tau hao ai kotoá.
