ATA FOU (N,ew Dawn)
Lyrics - Opetaia Foa'i Music -Opetaia Foa'i/Malcolm Smith

Lalolagi Tamilohaga
kae nofonofo ake te La
tuku mai ki tatou te ola
fakapelepele

Nofo ake o te ata
kalaga mai e kamata te aho
paku ake o te La
kalaga mai o te aho kua uma

Tele tele tamilohaga
kae nofonofo ake te La
tuku mai ki tatou te ola
fakapelepele

Tamilomilo kite la
maua ai te taimi te ola
hapo kae he fakamaumau
manako mai
e kikila ki mua i tetahi

With each turn
the sun remains
Giving out
keeping us alive
Something Precious

A new dawn
A call to seize the day
Not wasted
Sundown ends the day
A call to rest
Look forward to the next
