Vocals: Youke Fritz

 

Lyrics:

Opo wana natas'se
Tembone se mengale ngale
Tembone se mengale ngale
Pakatuan pakalawiren

Kuramo kalalei u langit
Tentumo kalalei un tana
Kuramo kalalei un tana
Tentumo kalalei ta in tou

Nikita in tou karia
Eni mapa susuat uman
Eni mapa susuat uman karia
Wia si Opo wananatas

Si Opo wana natas
Sia si matau ampeleng
Sia si matau ampeleng
Mamuali wia mbawoin tana

Lyrics in English:

God in heaven
Look down on the people in the world
Look down on the people in the world
May we have long life and prosperity

Your will be done on earth/country
as it is in heaven
Your will be done upon people
as it is on earth/country

We are, as human, my friend
all the same
all the same, my friend
to God

God in heaven,
He knows everything
He knows everything
Whatever is going to happen on earth/country
