Lo’u Atunu’u pele ‘oe
Oute tiu I lou igoa
O ‘oe o lo’u fa’amoemoe
O ‘oe ole Penina ole Pasefika

Ole Malo ole sa’olotoga

Ole Malo ole sa’olotoga

English Translation[1]

American Samoa
You are my beloved country
Your name I shan't search for
You are my hope
You are the jewel of the Pacific
That is the lure of the five islands
Your name forever holds
Your legends of yore
Tutuila and Manu'a Ala mai
Stand up and be counted
Serve and bow down to your country
Let it be blessed and grow
American Samoa
The land of the free
(repeat)
Serve and bow down to your country
Let it be blessed and grow
American Samoa
The land of the free
