Manatua mai a’u

(Pati performs the version in this clip.) A solemn song of reflection and worship, remembering the sacrifice that Christ made for us on the cross.

A o tautau Iesu i luga o le satauro
O ona vae ma lima na tu’ia i fao
Silasila le pagota ma ua ta’e lona fatu
Ona ia tepa ia Iesu ma tagi atu

{ CHORUS }

Le Ali’i e manatua mai a’u
Pea e afio atu i lou mamalu
Ua ou iloa nei le lautele o lou alofa
Ina ia le fano se tasi, ae ia o’u ola

Ao ou faitau le tala i le Tusi Paia
Na ou lagona ua nao Iesu e manaomia
O lea o lou ola oute tu’uina atu
Ma pei o le pagota ua o’u tagi atu

{ CHORUS }

Lo’u nuu Samoa e pele i le loto e
O lo’o faatali nei Iesu mo oe
Ia tatala lou lotu ia te ia
E mautinoa e te maua ai le fiafia

{ CHORUS }

  2. My heart cries out for all those who lost their families, friends, relatives, home, churches,pets,and loved ones to the 2009 Tsunami in Lalomanu and the whole of Samoa. I pray to God that His great comfort abides upon all of Samoa during these hard days of sorrow and pain.
    Our Grey family wishes the best of condolences to all Samoa’s brave souls that is now with our Heavenly Father because of this natural disaster. Hope that everyone is at peace and is willingly to hold major faith to be strong Samoan warriors for our loved ones while they continue to rest with our Heavenly Father.
    God Speed….Love Kathleen Grey.
