HAERE MAI , MALO E LELEI, TALOFA, NAMASTE, BULA - WELCOME

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
