Ko e Faitotonu ʻo Faka-ʻOtua

ʻI he fiefia

1. Ko e faitotonu ʻo faka-ʻOtua,

ʻOku hā pē ʻa hono fua,

Hono mahuʻinga ʻoku laulōtaha,

Kuo ʻatu ia taʻe totongi kotoa,

Ki he faʻahinga ʻo e tangata.

2. Ko e faitotonu mo talangofua,

ʻE totongi ʻe he ʻOtua,

ʻO fekumi leva ki he angahala,

Ke ʻohake ki he kolo ʻo e ʻOtua,

Nofo ai mo e fiefia.

3. ʻE lilingi hifo ho tāpuaki,

Kuo ʻomai hotau ʻEiki,

Kuo hulu ʻa Hono masanisani,

Pea tuʻu maʻu ʻEne kōsipeli,

Ko ho tāpuaki moʻoni.

4. Ka ko e moʻoni ʻoku tatau ai pē,

Tuʻuloa ʻo ʻEne pule,

ʻE mole ʻa e langi pea mo e fonua,

Ka ʻe ʻikai mole ʻa e folofola,

Ka ʻe tuʻu ʻo lauikuonga.
