He Mihi

Whakarongo ake ki te tangi a te manu
E karanga nei, Tui, tui, tuituia.
Tuia ki runga, tuia ki raro
Tuia ki roto, tuia ki waho
Ka rongo te ao, ka rongo te pō

Tuia ki te kāwai tangata
I heke mai i Hawaiki nui
I Hawaiki roa
I Hawaiki pāmamao
I te Hono ki Wairua
Ki te whaiao, ki te ao mārama
Tihei mauri ora!

Tēnā tātou i ō tātou tini mate e takoto tīraha nei i runga i ō tātou marae, i runga hoki i ō tātou papakāinga, huri noa i te motu. Kua uwhia rātou ki ngā taumata kōrero e tika ana nā reira tukuna rātou kia okioki i runga i te moenga roa.

Āpiti hono, tātai hono, koutou te hunga mate ki a koutou.

Āpiti hono, tātai hono, tātou te hunga ora ki a tātou. Tēnā tātou katoa.

E mihi atu ana ki ngā tauira pakeke, ngā pou ako, me ngā tumuaki o ngā pūtahi mātauranga I whai wāhi ki te kaupapa e kīa nei Te pakeke hei ākonga. I te kore koutou ka kore te manu nei e rere ki tōna taumata.

Nō reira, tēnā rawa atu koutou me ngā whakaaro I puta I tēnā, I tēnā, o koutou.

Kāti ake i konei, raurangatira mā, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou, tēnā tātou katoa.
