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

  3. Hi…..I have the lyrics, now I need the traditional tune to:

    ‘Fa’afetai i le Atua’ – the version with the chorus ‘ia pepese ia pepese alleluia fa’aetai’

    Can anyone help me please. i have one copy of a version I got yesterday from Australia, sadly it’s not the one. My phone number is 0272247149.If you can help I would be most grateful.

    Thanks, and many blessings

  4. I so need to learn this haha I’m like plastic as, the only aikae sitting there not singing cause I dont know the words haha even my younger cousins know the words bahaha poor me!

    1. Yes that’s what I thought, I can sing this without looking at the words, there’s 2 fati (versions) to this hymn. My mum used to sing the old version which was the hard one. May God test her soul , this reminds me of her and the other members of the family who have passed on.

  5. Love this song, not only good but it means a lot.Ia viia le Atua mo lona alofa tunoa. Always end the song with the famous… AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA-MMMMMMMMMMMMMM-EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE-NNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN-EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! praise god, hallelujah amen 🙂

  6. Sometimes when we hear hymns such as this, it doesn’t face us a bit, and then there are those special moments when you hear it again, memories of families floods the mind and soul, when waking up in morning prayers and evening praise singing this song.

    Its always nice to be reminded of the beginning and roots when hearing these old hymnal through the clutters of life.
