Fakaʻofa kia te au (Have Pity on Me)

Fakaʻofa kiate au
Ko si'ono tataki atu
Ke tutuki ki he ʻakau
Ka naʻe ʻikai si'ane hanu
 
Tau tuʻu hake muʻa ʻo ʻalu
Kia Sisu he funga 'akau
Ne pekia ʻi ai ʻa e hau
Ko e fai hotau fakatau
 
Sisu ʻe ne ke ongosia
He mamafa ʻemau hia
Ne ʻikai te ke hanu pe ki he
Ka ke ʻofa heʻemau mate
 
Tangi ʻa siʻoku lotu
He lavae ne ai ki ho sino
Koe faʻo e fa moe tao
Tafe ai ʻa siʻono toto
 
Tau tuʻu hake muʻa ʻo alu
Kia Sisu he funga ʻakau
Ne ʻikai ke ke hanu pe ki he
Koe fai hotau fakatau
 
Sisu ne ke ongosia
He mamafa ʻemau hia
Ne ʻikai te ke hanu pe ki he
Ka ke ʻofa heʻemau mate.

Have Pity Upon Me

Have pity upon me
His procession [to Golgotha]
To be nailed onto the cross
Without fear.
 
Let us rise and press forward
Towards Jesus, who is upon the cross
He died there, the King
He died for us.1
 
Oh Jesus, art thou weary
From the burdens of our trespasses?
Never wast thou in dismay
But in love did thou abidest.
 
My soul weeps
For the wounds inflicted on thee
The four nails and the crown of thorns
His blood floweth thereon.
 
Let us rise and press forward
Towards Jesus, who is upon the cross
He died there, the King
He died for us.
 
Oh Jesus, art thou weary
From the burdens of our trespasses?
Never wast thou in dismay
But in love did thou abidest.
 
  • 1. lit. [there], he made our exchange
"Work hard in silence, let your success be your noise!"
