The Lord’s Prayer in Tokelau

At Pacific Learners Education, we are passionate about delivering content that can have a positive impact on our children’s sense of identity and belonging. So, passing on simple cultural phrases, songs, stories and scriptures is an important way of connecting our children to their faith.

Having a strong foundation in faith is an essential part in developing character and resilience. There is not doubt, our children will encounter tough and difficult times throughout their lives, so leaning on their faith can support them through these difficult periods. 

In this video, we have translated one of the most well known scriptures in the Bible, the ‘Lord’s Prayer’ from English to Tokelauan.

The Lord’s Prayer in Tokelauan

Our Father who art in heaven
To mātou Tamana i te lagi

Hallowed be Thy Name
Ke tapu tō igoa

Thy Kingdom come
Ke pa mai tō Mālō

Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven
Ke faia tō loto i te lalolagi, E vē ona faia i te lagi

Give us this day our daily bread.
Fōki mai i te aho nei nā meakai ke ola ai ki mātou.

And forgive us our trespasses
fakamagalo o matou hehē

as we forgive
e vē ona fakamagalo eki matou

those who trespass against us.
ia hehē o ie tahi tino kia teki matou.

And lead us not into temptation,
Nahe takitakia ki matou kina fakaohoohoga,

but deliver us from the evil.
kae laveaki ki mātou mai te kino.

For Thine is the Kingdom,
Auā e ō koe te mālō,

the Power, and the Glory
mate mana, mate vikiga,

Forever and ever,
e fakavavau fakavavau lava,
