French Polynesian anthem lyrics (English translation)
God created my homeland
Fragrant garland laid across the many islands
Ode to the little flowers we love
It's a never-fading wreath of sennit
That I celebrate today
Listen to your children's voices
Calling us to cherish the beloved
Long live Tahiti Nui !
