Fa’afetai i le Atua

A song of praise and gratitude to God, performed beautifully in this clip by the South Pacific International Christian Centre

Fa’afetai i le atua
lena tatou tupu ai
ina ua na alofa fua
ia te tatou uma

Tali: ia pepese ia pepese
aleluia faafetai
ia pepese ia pepese
aleluia faafetai

Faafetai i lona alo
lena afio mai luga
le ua fai ma faapaolo
mai le puapuaga

Tali: ia pepese ia pepese
aleluia faafetai
ia pepese ia pepese
aleluia faafetai

Faafetai i le agaga
le fesoasoani mai
e manuia talosaga
atoa uma mea e fai

Tali: ia pepese ia pepese
aleluia faafetai
ia pepese ia pepese
aleluia faafetai
