(Leader) Ohomairaki!
(All) Ohomairaki
E karanga e te iwi e
Kua eke mai nei
Kua eke mai nei ki runga te marae e

Mauria mai ra
Mauria mai ra e nga mate o te motu e
Me nga tini roimata
Me nga tini roimata e maringi whanui e

Aue titiro e nga iwi
Titiro e nga iwi ki nga mahi o te motu
e hora ake nei e

Rū ana te whenua
Rū ana te whenua, whatiwhati te moana
Aue te aroha
Aue te aroha te mamae i ahau e

Rū ana te whenua whatiwhati
Hi!

Ohomairaki
is calling to the people

Who have just set foot on this marae

Bring with you the memories of all our dead

and the many tears that fall throughout the land

Look at our people working across the land
spread out far and wide

The ground shakes, the sea quivers

Oh the love and the pain within me.

The ground shakes and quivers
Hi!
