6. Ave lou ola

1 Ave lou ola ia aoga
Le Alii e, i au feau
Ave ou aso us totoe
E viia ai o lau Afio.

O lou alofa ua naunau
E auauna atu ia te oe
Ia e talia o au attoa
Ia fai mo or e faavavau.

2 Ave ou lima ia fai ai
Mea e aoga ia te oe
Ave ou vae ia aoga
E femoei au feau. [Refrain]

3 Ave lou leo ia aoga
E tauvivii ai ia te oe
O ou lougutu ia aoga
E telaiina ai au feau. [Refrain]


1 Take my life and let it be useful,
Lord, for your duties,
Take my remaining days
for praising your Majesty.

My love greatly desires
to serve you;
accept all of me
so I am made yours forever.

2 Take my arms and let them do
what will be useful to you.
Take my legs and let them be useful
in running to do your tasks. [Refrain]

3 Take my voice and let is be useful
in praising you.
Let my lips be useful
in telling of your works. [Refrain]
