Te Atua mou e

Te Atua mou e
Ko koe rai te pu
O te pa enua e
Akarongo mai
I to matou nei reo
Te kapiki atu nei
Paruru mai
Ia matou nei
Omai te korona mou
Kia ngateitei
Kia vai rai te aroa
O te pa enua e.

 

To God Almighty, Ruler of the isles of the sea, hearken our call! Protect us, crown us with liberty. May peace and love reign supreme throughout the land.
