Tūtawa mai i runga
Tūtawa mai i raro
Tūtawa mai i roto
Tūtawa mai i waho
Kia tau ai
Te mauri tū
Te mauri ora
Ki te katoa
I te tuatahi, me wehi ki te Atua. Ka whakahonore tō tātou Kīngi, a Kingi Tuheitia Potatau Te Tuawhitu e noho ana i runga i te ahurewa tapu o ona Matua Tupuna, me Te Makau Ariki Atawhai me o rāua tamariki mokopuna, puta noa ki te whare Ariki nui tonu, Pai marire ki a rātou
Ka tiritiria ki te mara kotipu, ka tipu, ka rea, ka matau, ka ora. Koinei tatou ki a tatou, ngā iwi o te motu.
Kia mahara hoki ki te hunga mate, te whakaoriori ma, te whakapopo ma, mai ngā marae maha o te motu, e tangihia ana, e mihia ana, moe mai rā ki roto i ngā ringa kaha o tō tātou Matua i te rangi.
Ka hoki mai ki a tatou te hunga ora, nei noa te mihi, nei te whakahau, Ko tā Te Poari Matua o te Manu Kiwi, e whai take te hihiri i te wawata, te ukauka o te tu, te whakatupu tikanga oranga, tikanga whai take ki tenei o ngā manu o te wao nui a Tāne.
E te Rangatira o Ngai te Rangi, Ngāti Awa, Maniapoto, Tuhourangi, nau mai, piki mai, whakatau mai ra. Ko te tumanako mā tēnei o nga kaupapa nui whakahirahira, e eke panuku ngā mahi ki ngā tapuhipuhitanga o te ao tūroa, ki a whakawhiti ki te toi o ngā rangi mō āpōpō.
Mā mua ka kite a muri. Mā muri ka ora a mua.
Those who lead give sight to those who follow. Those who follow give life to those who lead.
