E te Atua, aroha mai,
E te Atua, aroha mai,

Ake, ake tonu e.
Ake, ake tonu e.

E te Atua, manaaki mai,
E te Atua, manaaki mai,
E te Atua, manaaki mai.
Ake, ake tonu e.
Ake, ake tonu e.
(O God bless us … forever and ever, Amen)

E te Atua, awhina mai,
E te Atua, awhina mai,
E te Atua, awhina mai.
Ake, ake tonu e.
Ake, ake tonu e.
(O God help us … forever and ever, Amen)
