lyrics

Hiwa, Hiwa, Hiwa, Hiwa…

I wanna send my wishes up to Hiwa-i-te-Rangi
She is bright she is shiny
She a star of Matariki

Plant me in the ground facing Hiwa-i-te-Rangi
Cite the prayers - giving thanks
She all-knowing Matariki

Homai - he tauira
Homai - he tau ranea
Homai - everywhere I go show me I’m not on my own
Homai - he tau rea
Homai - he tau houkura
Homai - in my heart of hope are seeds of love for everyone…

Ko Hiwa
Ko Hiwa nui
Ko Hiwa
Ko Hiwa roa
Ko Hiwa pūkenga
Ko Hiwa wānanga
Takataka te kāhui o te rangi
Koia pou tō putanga
Ki te whei ao
Ki te ao mārama (mārama)
(X2)

The first star that I see tonight is Hiwa-i-te-Rangi
With all my heart
My wish providing plenty for my Iwi

For bounty and harmony I ask Hiwa-i-te-Rangi
She is light she is glowing
She almighty Matariki
Homai - he tauira
Homai - he tau ranea
Homai - everywhere I go show me I’m not on my own
Homai - he tau rea
Homai - he tau houkura
Homai - in my heart of hope are seeds of love for everyone…


Ko Hiwa
Ko Hiwa nui
Ko Hiwa
Ko Hiwa roa
Ko Hiwa pūkenga
Ko Hiwa wānanga
Takataka te kāhui o te rangi
Koia pou tō putanga
Ki te whei ao
Ki te ao mārama (mārama)
(X2)

Hiwa - te whetū pōtiki
Hiwa - te tapu o Matariki
Hiwa - mōu ōku wawata
Ko Hiwa, Ko Hiwa

Ko Hiwa
Ko Hiwa nui
Ko Hiwa
Ko Hiwa roa
Ko Hiwa pūkenga
Ko Hiwa wānanga
Takataka te kāhui o te rangi
Koia pou tō putanga
Ki te whei ao
Ki te ao mārama (mārama)
(X2)
