The lyrics of the National Anthem of Tonga
Ko e fasi ‘o e tu’i ‘o e ‘Otu Tonga
ʻE ʻotua māfimafi
Ko homau ʻeiki koe
Ko koe ko e falalaʻanga
Mo e ‘ofa ki Tonga;
ʻAfio hifo ʻemau lotu
ʻA ia ʻoku mau faí ni
Mo ke tali homau loto
ʻO maluʻi ʻa Tupou.
Song of the King of the Tongan Islands
Oh almighty God above
Thou art our lord and sure defense
As your people, we trust thee
And our Tonga thou dost love
Hear our prayer for thou unseen
We know that thou hath blessed our land
Grant our earnest supplication
Guard and save Tupou, our king.
The National Anthem of Tonga was written by Uelingatoni Ngū Tupoumalohi and composed by Carl Gustav Schmitt.
The motto of Tonga: God and Tonga are my Inheritance.
