E Te Hokowhitu a Tū

E te Hokowhitu a Tū kia kaha rā

Kāti rā te hingahinga ki raro rā

Hei arahi ki te ara e tika ai

Whirinaki, whirinaki tātou katoa

Ngā maunga e tū noa nei

A hi au i aue

Oh brave band of Tū be strong 
Do not let yourselves be struck down 
Let your thoughts be always heavenwards 
to guide you along the path that is the proper one 
Depend, depend each upon the other 
 
Lonely stands our marae and 
lonely stands our mountains, 
ah! for you, our sons, 
pain and deep sadness 
beats so deep within me. 
and stand together as one. 
 
Ngārimu loved one 
everyone here is 
lamenting your death.
