Tangihia, tangihia o tātou aitua
-Weep, weep for our dead
Kua wehea atu rā ki te pō
-Who have departed from us into the night
Nō reira āwhinatia mai te kaupapa rā
-Therefore when you assist us in today's programme
Whaka-mahara-tanga ki a rātou mā
-Remember them
Kia mau ki ō tikanga me to reo Māori
-Hold firm to your traditions and to your Maori language
Hei tauira mauri ki te iwi, aue.
-As a living example to the people, yes!

Ka huri ki mihi ki nga rōpu o te rohe.
-We turn and greet the groups of the district.
Toru atu nei ngā ringaringa o tēnei rōpu
-Stretched forth are the hands of this group
Kia kotahi rā tātou ki roto i tēnei wa
-Let us be as one in this period of time
Ki te tautoko aka ki tō tātou Māoritanga
-devoted to strengthening our Maori culture
Ki kaha rā, aue!
-Be strong, aye!
No reira hōmai ki a au te mata o tō mana
-Therefore give us the source of your spiritual power
Tātou ka whakakite atu ki te ao katoa
-And we will show it to the whole world.
Maranga rā, āwhiniatia te karanga
-Arise, support the call
Hui e, taiki e, kia ora rā, aue!
-Let us all gather together, intertwine, and do well, aye!

E ngā iwi e tau nei, pōwhiritia rā
-To all the people gathered here, greetings;
E aku rangitira karangatia rā, aue.
-To our esteemed leaders, especially.
He mihi nui atu ki ngā taitamariki
-This is a great tribute to us young people
Haere mai, haere mai, aue
-Welcome, welcome, goodness me!
He kupu karanga te rangatahi aue
-The topic is the young generation,
Tēnei rā te kaupapa; āwhinatia rā
-and this is its purpose - to assist us

-to give us knowledge and to support us.
Horahia mai ki a au aku toa tūpuna
-Let it spread to us from our accomplished ancestors
Hui e, taiki e, whakrongo, x2
-Let us gather together, intertwine and listen to each other x2
Tēnā rā koutou
-Greetings to you all
Tihe, hi aue hei, mauri ora,
-The first breath, indeed, the breath of life
Taiki e.
-That sums it up.
