Tuvaluan LyricsEdit

Tuvalu mo te Atua,

Ko te Fakavae sili,

Ko te ala foki tena,

Mo te manuia katoa

Loto lasi o fai,

Tou malo saoloto

Fusi ake katoa

Ki te loto alofa

Kae amo fakatasi

Ate atu fenua.

“Tuvalu mo te Atua”

Ki te se gata mai!


Tuku atu tau pulega

Ki te pule mai luga,

Kilo tonu ki ou mua

Me ko ia e tautai.

“Pule tasi mo ia”

Ki te se gata mai,

Ko tena mana

Ko tou malosi tena.

Pati lima kae kalaga

Ulufonu ki te tupu.

“Tuvalu ko tu saoloto”

Ki te se gata mai!

English LyricsEdit

Tuvalu for the Almighty

Are the words we hold most dear

For as people or as leaders

Of Tuvalu we all share

In the knowledge that God

Ever rules in heav’n above,

And that we in this land

Are united in His love.

We build on a sure foundation

When we trust in God’s great law

“Tuvalu for the Almighty”

Be our song for evermore!


Let us trust our lives henceforward

To the King to whom we pray,

With our eyes fixed firmly on Him

He is showing us the way.

“May we reign with Him in glory”

Be our song for evermore,

for His almighty power

Is our strength from shore to shore.

Shout aloud in jubilation

To the King whom we adore.

“Tuvalu free and united”

Be our song for evermore!
