Nā te Ira Atua
Te mana, te mauri, me te tapu
O ngā mea katoa
Mā te pono, te tika, me te aroha
E whakaahua te mana
Te mauri me te tapu o te tangata. 
Tihei Mauriora!
From the realm of gods
Comes the prestige, life force, and sacredness of all things
By truth, correct practice and unconditional love
The prestige, life force and sacredness of all people is enhanced
Behold the breath of life!
