NGA MIHI WHAKAMIHARO

Tiwha tiwha Te Ao
Tiwha tiwha Te Po
Tenei te tai o ruhi
Ka papaki mai ki te matahau
Ka tu te ihiihi
Ka tau te wanawana
Tihei wa mauri ora

He honore, he kororia ki te Atua
He maunga a rongo ki runga i te mata o te whenua
He whakaaro pai ki nga tangata katoa

Whakahonoretia kia Kiingi Tuheitia
E pupuru nei i te mana
i te tapu o te Ahurewa Tapu o ana matua tupuna
Ko koe tonu te tauihu o te waka
Tu mai te Pou Kara o Te Kiingitanga
Tu mai, tu mai, tu tonu e
Pai marire

E nga mate tuatini o te motu, haere atu ra
Kua wheturangitia koutou ki te Kahurangi
Moe mai ra e, hoki wairua atu ra koutou

Tatou te kanohi ora
Kei te mihi

Nau mai, kuhu mai
I roto o tatou nei pataka urunga atea
Tena tatou katoa

Kotahi ano te kohao o te ngira e kuhuna ai te miro ma, te miro pango me te miro whero.

I muri i au, kia mau ki te aroha, ki te ture, me te whakapono

Potatau Te Wherowhero, 1858

There is but one eye of the needle through which the white, black and red threads must pass.

After I am gone, hold fast to love, to the law, and to resolute faith.
