lyrics

TE KAITIAKI
Ka tū au i te ākau 
I te atatū o te tau hou
Karanga ai ki a Tangaroa 

Ka īnoi au, ka waiata au
Ka īnoi au, ka waiata au
Me kore ia e rongo mai

Puta ohorere mai - i te huka mā o te tai 
Ko Tangaroa e toro mai nei e - aue

Te Kaitiaki o te moana
Te Atua o te moana
Te Mana o te moana
Tangaroa e!

Te tinana o te kēkeno - pango nui - aue!
Ka hotu taku manawa

He tuatahi nōku ki te karanga ki te moana
Me te whai whakautu e!

Te Kaitiaki o te moana
Te Atua o te moana
Te Mana o te moana
Tangaroa e
