Latvian National Anthem - Dievs, svētī Latviju!

Dievs, svētī Latviju,
Mūs’ dārgo tēviju,
Svētī jel Latviju,
Ak, svētī jel to!
 
Kur latvju meitas zied,
Kur latvju dēli dzied,
Laid mums tur laimē diet,
Mūs’ Latvijā!

I may not know IPA but I'm Latvian and I would say that "muːz", "mɛi̯.tæz", "mu(m)s" just seem wrong.

In IPA, plurals have a "z". I know IPA but I got this from Wikipedia.

Edit: I checked with Google Translate's TTS (text to speech), the IPA is correct.

So, according to IPA it's ok to write down "svɛːtiː" with 's' and "muːz" with 'z' despite we pronounce 's' in both cases?
