Lyrics:
Taku tūātea ka whati i te āheu
Papaki tū ana ngā tai ki te Onetapu
O Motunamata
(x2)
I hea au
I te uranga mai
O te ahi papakura

Hōmai te waiora,
Haumanu, hauora
Kia manawatītī
(x2)

He manapou, he manatawa, he manawa whenua
He oranga-ā-nuku, he oranga-ā-rangi e
(x2)
Mā te hau tāwaho
E pupuhi mai nei
He hōmai aroha

Taku tūātea... (x4)

The crest of my wave broken by the southerly winds of no bounds
Crashing on the sacred sands of the future
(x2)
Consumed by the struggle to live
I was blinded and did not see your
(Mother Earth) warning signs

Therefore provide sustenance to the world
Revitalize to a full enduring health

The life essence that wells up from the heart of the land
To rejuvenate Heaven and Earth
(x2)
With the breeze that blows hither carrying love

The crest of my wave...(x4)
