Nau mai rā, Piki mai

Nau mai rā, kake mai

Haere mai rā

Ngā Whetū Matarau

Nō runga i te rangi me te whenua

 

E tū nei Te Aroha-o-te-Waipounamu

E karanga nei

Tukua atu rā taku reo pōwhiri

Ki nga iwi e

 

Te Whakapono te tūmanako

Me te aroha

Ko te mea nui ko te aroha

Ki te tangata

 

Ngā ohākī a ngā tipuna

Ki a mātou e 

Nō reira mauria mai

Te aroha e te iwi e

 

*Kia kotahi e patuki o te manawa

"Kia kotahi nei te reo

*o Ngāti Apa ki te Rā Tō

Ka ea ngā wawata haere mai te iwi e

Te iwi e haere mai rā

 

Men: Kia kotahi te patuku

Kia kotahi te manawa

Mauria mai te aroha.
