Asking the Lord for forgiveness

Le Atua e Le Atua e
Se’i talia mai o la’u olega
O a’u o se tagata agasala ma leaga
i ou luma

Ua ou iloa
Ua na’o oe le Faaola
e mapu ai
O puapuaga ma faigata
o lenei olaga

Le Atua faamalosi mai
I lou agaga ua tauvaivai
Aapa mai ma laveai a’u
I ou aao ua ou malu ai

Le Atua e
Ua ou tagi atu
Lo’u ola nei ou te fia avatu
Fia faaogaina
O lo’u nei ola
Ma lo’u nei leo
Mo ou viiga
