Ka rongo ngā taringa i ngā ngaru whati mai
He ngaru tāngataHe ngaru wairua
He ngaru rangatira
Nau mai ki te kutakitanga o ngā awa o Ōtara, o Waioweka.  
E rere mananui atu nei ki te Moana-a-Toi.

Nau mai haere mai ki tēnei whare tapu
Nau mai haere mai ki tēnei whare o Te Atua

I hear the waves that break beyond
It is a wave of people
It is a wave of spirits
It is a wave of chiefs

Welcome to the place where the rivers of Ōtara and Waioweka converge
As they flow so majestically to the Pacific Ocean

Welcome to this holy place
