Faka'ofa Kiate Au  

Lyrics

Faka'ofa kiate au

Ko Si'ono tataki atu,

Ke tutuki ki he 'akau,

Ka na'e 'ikai si'ane hanu

Tangi 'a si'oku lotó.

He lavea ne 'ai 'i Ho sino,

Ko e fa'o 'e fā mo e taó

Tafe ai Si'ono ta'a ta'a.

Tau tu'u hake mu'a 'o 'alu kia Sīsū he funga 'akau,

Ne pekia 'i ai 'a e Hau ko e fai ho tau fakatau.

Sīsū e ne Ke ongosia he mamafa 'emau hia,

Ne 'ikai te ke hanu pe 'i ai ka ke 'ofa he'emau mate.

'Oku tangi hoku lotó,

Tafe ai 'a e vai mo e toto

Lau na'e fakamamahi'i,

Ho tauta'a 'i Ketisemaní.

Tau tu'u hake mu'a 'o 'alu kia Sīsū he funga 'akau,
Ne pekia 'i ai 'a e Hau ko e fai ho tau fakatau.
Sīsū e ne Ke ongosia he mamafa 'emau hia,
Ne 'ikai te ke hanu pe 'i ai ka ke 'ofa he'emau mate.

About the song...

Growing up singing this song in church, I've always felt this song to be special. The beauty of this song, for me, is the lyrics. Although I don't have the English translation of this song, the English title simply sums it up: "He Who Was Crucified."

 "For behold, I, God, have suffered these things for all, that they might not suffer if they would repent;" - D&C 19:16
