Matua lau pule lea

Ua silimea nei le seuga,

Aoaoga o lenei tausaga ua taualuga.

Ua ae i fanua le faatautaiga,

Le toatele o fanau ua faamaeaina taumafaiga.

Ua tini ma tau lau o nisi o faamoemoega,

Ao nisi e moomia pea le faaauau o le tamoega.

E mua ai la le viiga i le Atua,

Uso e,ia natia pea i taua.

O le upu moni e gaoa le ala i manuia,

Peitai e tau i manu faiva e tapuaia.

Le galuega fita lea a nai matua,

O so ta manuia sa tulivae ai i luma o le Atua.

O ala sa o matou uia sa fola ia outou talosaga,

Le uiga moni lea o le matua faitama.

E te lei manatu i le timu ma le la,

Ae na sili lou manatu ina ia ou aoga.

E te lei manatu i le pologa ma le tigaina,

Ae na sili lou manatu ina ia ou faaeaina.

O le upu moni ana le seanoa a outou tatalo,

E le tuta i fanua le vaa sa o matou taualo.

Faafetai i lo outou lava papale ma le onosai,

Faafetai tatalo malo tapuai.

Ae o a matou toe upu e faapea,

MATUA LAU PULE LEA
