lyrics

“Mate ana te tangata ka tīmata tōna hāere i te ara wairua
Ki te Pōhutukawa tawhito e tū tonu mai rā i Te Rerenga Wairua
Ka heke i reira mā te aka o te rākau
Kei raro o te aka ko te aka roa ko te aka maroke
Ko te aka maroke o te Pōhutukawa kāore nei e tae ki te moana
Ko Mauriānuku tēra
Koia rā te tomokanga ki Rarohenga”

Pōhutukawa te tuohu nei au
Miramira mai i te pō
Kōia e kitea
Kōia e ngaro
E minamina au mōu i te pō
Te whetū tapu
Te whetū tapu o Te Kāhui Matariki

Pōhutukawa ē tīaho mai rā
E miramira mai i te pō
He tohu aroha
He tohu mate
E matapōrehu ana au i te pō
Arahia te kura
Arahia te kura ki Te Waka o Rangi

Nōu te karanga nui (nui)
Nōu te kawenga nui (nui)
Te tapu o Pōhutukawa e
(Rere atu rā e te kura)
