Tala mai le lagi

This upbeat song of praise encourages Samoa to love, worship and have faith in our wise and Holy God, who saves souls.

Tala mai e le lagi
o le mamalu o le silisili ese
A o le vanimonimo
e fa’aalia galuega tetele

Le la ma le masina
e fesuisuia’e i le ao ma le po
O lona finagalo
e galulue ai ma malolo

Sau la’ia ta o
i le Atua o le manumalo
Samoa e le fa’avae
Le fa’avae o lou malo

Aua ne’i e toe
fa’alotolotolua
O le Atua e pa’ia
E silisili ese lona poto

Le faiva fa’aleatua
o le fagotaina o agaga
Ina ia salamo
ma talia o le fa’aolataga

O lona finagalo e le faavavau
i finau ma tagata
O le faamasinoga
e te tu lava mo oe lava

Sau la’ia ta o
i le Atua o le manumalo
Samoa e le fa’avae
Le fa’avae o lou malo

Aua ne’i e toe
fa’alotolotolua
O le Atua e pa’ia
E silisili ese lona poto

Amuia le tagata
o lo’o filifili lelei ona ala
E le faatauemu
ae nanau i poloaiga uma lava

E pei o le la’au
e tau fuifui i fuata uma lava
E le fa’anoia
ae matagofie lana silafaga

Sau la’ia ta o
i le Atua o le manumalo
Samoa e le fa’avae
Le fa’avae o lou malo

Aua ne’i e toe
fa’alotolotolua
O le Atua e pa’ia
E silisili ese lona poto

Sau la’ia ta o
i le Atua o le manumalo
Samoa e le fa’avae
Le fa’avae o lou malo

Aua ne’i e toe
fa’alotolotolua
O le Atua e pa’ia
E silisili ese lona poto

O le Atua e pa’ia
E silisili ese lona poto

O le Atua e pa’ia
E silisili ese lona poto

    Great job….I am actually choreographing to this song for next years Aloha Festival.
    The one ur missing i had a hard time with it too but to go with the context of the song I think it itsomeging like…..
    “LE FAIVA FAALEATUA”

  2. galu says:

    Same her….choreographing for a cousins wedding!!!
    I think Sama is right-“LE FAIVA FA’ALEATUA” goes into the gap!!
    Thanks for writing this my mum really wanted the words to it!!

  3. Trina sau says:

    Fix the lyrics..spell your words like a real Samoan would..thank u

  4. Sene says:

    What’s wrong with the spelling?
    A: Define a real Samoan and their spelling!. Some can’t spell. Some, even in the language of their chiefs’ language continue in what’s termed ‘tautala leaga’.
    E: If you’re referring to the glottal stops, what’s the harm in putting them in for Samoans who are learning the language?
    I: If you google the name of this song, for lyrics; you’ll find this is the only site! So, thank you for adding it:)

  5. Gerdy says:

    I think trina is refering to *faavavau..it’s not faavavao!

    Good Job. Thanks 🙂

    Is it possible for you to do an English translation to this song? 🙂 Thanks

  13. hamogeekgirl says:

    Hey guys.. I’ll put this on the list for songs to translate (as you can imagine, we’ve got lots in the list so far).

    But for those of you who are choreographing, let me give you a quick idea of what this song is about.

    “Tala mai le lagi” means the word (message) from Heaven. This song is all praise and worship. It talks about the wonder that is God, manifest in all His creations -- the sun, the moon, etc. Then it encourages people to not sit on the fence, because God is holy and omniscient.

    The song continues on like that 🙂

    Once we have a minute to translate it fully, I’ll post up a link.

    Thanks

  20. Mora says:

    Talofa lava, thank you for posting up the lyrics to this beautiful song! You’ve done really well and I can understand it. The only word that I can see that needs a tweek in spelling is “naunau” where you’ve got nanau so it’s only a little tweek of adding a letter into it but other than that really appreciate the effort of having the words on here and posted up for all to see:) I like the english translation that you’ve posted up saying it’s a Praise and Worship song to a message from our wonderful God in Heaven to us! thanks again for stating on here what it means in English I would love to know and have this in English lyrics as well but other than that you’ve done great keep on keeping on posting up our amazing Samoan songs/pese. Faafetai lava:)
