Teirake Kaini Kiribati

(Stand, Kiribati)

Original I-Kiribati Words

Teirake kaini Kiribati,

Anene ma te kakatonga,

Tauraoi nakon te nwioko,

Ma ni buokia aomata,

Tauaninne n te raoiroi,

Tangiria aoma ta nako.

Tauani nne n te raoiroi,

Tangiria aomata.

Reken te kabaia ma te rau

Ibuakoia kaaiin abara

Bon reken te nano ae banin

Ma te i-tangitangiri naba.

Ma ni wakina te kab’aia,

Ma n neboa i eta abara.

Ma ni wakina te kab’aia,

Ma n neboa abara.

Ti butiko ngkoe Atuara

Kawakinira ao kairira

Nakon taai aika i maira.

Buokira ni baim ae akoi.

Kakabaia ara Tautaeka

Ma ake a makuri iai.

Kaka baia ara Tautaeka

Ma aomata ni bane.

Stand up, Kiribati!

Sing with jubilation!

Prepare to accept responsibility

And to help each other!

Be steadfastly righteous!

Love all our people!

And peace by our people

In the days to come.

Help us with Your loving hand.
