LYRICS

He kakano ahau i ruia mai i Rangiatea
And I could never be lost
I am a seed born of greatness
Descended from a line of Chief's
He kakano ahau

Ki hea ra au e hitekiteki ana kamau tonu i ahau oku tikanga
Toku reo toku oho oho
Toku reo toku mapihi mauria
Toku whakakai marihi
My language is my strength
An ornament of Grace

Ka tu ana ahau
Ka uhia au e oku tipuna
My pride I will show
That you may know
Who I am!
I am a Warrior, a survivor
He Morehu ahau

Ki hea ra au e hitekiteki ana kamau tonu i ahau oku tikanga
Toku reo toku oho oho
Toku reo toku mapiri mauria
Toku whakakai marihi
My language is my strength
An ornament of Grace
An ornament of Grace.
