E te Hokowhitu a Tū
Kia kaha rā
Kāti rā te hingahinga
Ki raro rā
Mā ngā whaka aro
Kei runga rawa
Hei arahi ki te ara
E tika ai
Whirinaki, whirinaki
Tātou katoa
Kia kotahi rā

Ngā marae e tū noa nei
Ngā maunga e tū noa nei
Aue rā e tama mā
Te mamae te pouri nui
E patu nei i ahau inā


Ngārimu aue
Anei te iwi e
E tangi nei e 


            Oh brave band of Tū
be strong
Do not let yourselves be
struck down
Let your thoughts be
always heavenwards
to guide you along the path
that is the proper one
Depend, depend
each upon the other
and .

Lonely stands our marae
Lonely stands our mountains
Ah! To you our sons
the pain and the deep sadness
beating within me so


Ngārimu loved one
here is your tribe
lamenting your death.
