As they march down from a fire site, this Samoan hotshot crew likes to unwind after a tough battle with the blazing flames with their favorite pastime. Not only are these men brave firefighters, but they're also talented singers. They love to sing powerful Samoan hymns when they're on the move!

Some people think the song in the video below is "What A Friend We Have In Jesus," but the tune is actually "Fa'afetai i le Atua”, a classic Samoan hymn is popular among the people and it all has to do with praising God for all that he has given them.

A very loose translation of the introduction would be: "Thank God/that we grow/when he was free/to all of us." The lyrics then go on to thank the Son of God for coming down from the Heavens and His soul for bringing successes to their lives.

These brave forest firefighters know that the job they do is risky, but they also know that they have God to thank for keeping them safe in dangerous situations. That's why they sing to the Heavens and praise Him while trekking to their next location. It's a beautiful sound to hear, as their singing echoes around in the forest.
