Anthem Lyrics

Meda Dau Doka - Fijian Version

Meda dau doka ka vinakata na vanua


E ra sa dau tiko kina na savasava


Rawa tu na gauna ni sautu na veilomani

Ni yavala me savasava na vanua


Ni kakua ni vosota na dukadukali


Ka me da sa qai biuta vakadua

Blessing grant oh God of nations on the isles of Fiji


As we stand united under noble banner blue


And we honour and defend the cause of freedom ever


Onward march together God bless Fiji

For Fiji, ever Fiji, let our voices ring with pride.


For Fiji ever Fiji her name hail far and wide,


A land of freedom , hope and glory to endure what ever befall.

Forever more!

Blessing grant oh God of nations on the isles of Fiji


Shores of golden sand and sunshine, happiness and song


Stand united , we of Fiji, fame and glory ever


Onward march together God bless Fiji.
