E tu Kahikatea

E tu kahikatea
Hei whakapae ururoa
Awhi mai awhi atu
Tatou tatou e

E tu kahikatoa
Kare kau e hinga
Awhi mai Awhi atu
Tatou tatou e

E tu Puriri
Toha ra o peka
Awhi mai Awhi atu
Tatou tatou e (x2)

Stand like the kahikatea (tree)
To brave the storms
Embrace and receive
We are one together

Stand with vigour
You will not fall
Give and receive help
We are one together

Stand like the Puriri
And reach out your branches
Embrace and receive
We are one together
