God, tekem laef blong mi,

Plis yu rul long laef blong yu.

God, mi laekem yu tumas,
Mbae yu king blong mi oltaem.




Evri samting ya blong mi

Overall Meaning

The song "God Yu Tekem Laef Blong Mi" by Hans Zimmer is a beautiful expression of deep reverence and devotion to a higher power. The lyrics are in Tok Pisin, a Creole language spoken in Papua New Guinea, and they convey the singer's complete surrender to God. In the first stanza, the singer offers their life to God and promises to honor His name every day. The second stanza asks God to take control of the hands and feet of the singer so that they may always speak of God's goodness. The third stanza asks God to take the voice of the singer so that it may always proclaim the message of grace.


The chorus of the song is a declaration of faith in God's sovereignty and goodness. The singer declares that God has given them strength and that He alone is the ruler of their life. The final stanza expresses the singer's love and devotion to God, acknowledging that everything they have comes from Him and that they offer it back to Him in gratitude and awe.


The song is an incredibly moving expression of faith and devotion. It reminds us that we are not in control of our lives, but that we can surrender to a higher power and trust in His goodness and provision. The use of Tok Pisin adds to the beauty and uniqueness of the song, emphasizing the universal nature of faith and worship.

What's so weird, they made it so you can't play this song on Spotify anymore! Thank goodness this video is here.

@voltapony75

this guy should be appreciated more. he composed Inception, Interstellar, Kung Fu Panda, Batman, and many more. 900K+ subscribers aren't enough for what he has made this far. Hans Zimmer is a king of movie composer!

@MUT6566

He is a Genius ❤💪🏻

@thehumanZ9163

He definitely helped change the way film scores are today

@queli7636

totally agreed 🥹

@oswaldthatendswald5892

totally overrated. should be appreciated less.

@jaytony2847

Yes, but those are 900k+ QUALITY subs based on his skill, talent and substance... unlike the likes and follows for other modern celebs they get based on how juice their most recent scandal is....

Hans "The Goat" Zimmer!

This song feels like life if you weren’t insignificant

@rebeccablankenship5937

You aren’t insignificant. You are fearfully and wonderfully made ❤

@vhufeosqap

Everyone matters and has the same intrinsic value. At yet we are all small and insignificant from a cosmic scale.
We find meaning in each other, experiences, music, film, … what we find meaning in is meaningful.
