Moemoeā

Ko te waha pūkāea

Te kaihoro i te ao

Te reo pūoro i te pō

He kahu tau mai te rangi

Ko tōna mata, uhia

Karanga mai e te manu huia

He reo kua riro i te pō

Ka rere a wairua ki ngā rangi

Ki te eke i te waka o Tamarereti

Hei huarahi atu

Tangi mai e te manu tūī

He reo ora ai i te ao

Whakahihiko te wairua

Whakahihiko te ngākau

Te whakatinana mai kia ita

Ko wai ka hua ka tohu

I te ata hāpara o te rangi

Te mina o te tangata

Te maumahara noa

I te ahi kā roa o Hawaiki

I te kimokimo o te whatu

Ko ngā hihi o te rā

He wini, ko te ata!

Ka awatea!
