I te tūtakinga o te moana me te rangi 
E whanga mai ana koe ki ahau 
Kā kōhimu mai koe i taku ingoa 
Me taku aroha anō ki a koe  
Tukua mai ō hau maiangi  
Hei whiu i ahau e 
Kia kawea ake au e te moemoeā

Ko taku moemoeā mo taku iwi 
Rangatahi mai, pakeke mai   
Au ake ana te wā 
Me tae wawe rā ahau 

Aotearoa
