Ehara I Te Mea

Ehara i te mea
No inaianei te aroha
No nga tupuna
I tuku iho, i tuku iho

Te whenua, te whenua
Hei oranga mo te iwi
No nga tupuna
I tuku iho, i tuku iho

Whakapono, tumanako
Hei oranga mo te iwi
No nga tupuna
I tuku iho, i tuku iho

Love is not
A thing of modern times
It comes from the ancestors
Passed down through time

The land, the land
Is the source of life for the people
It comes from the ancestors
Passed down through time

Faith and hope
Is the source of life for the people
It comes from the ancestors
Passed down through time
