He iti pioke, nō Rangaunu
He au tona, e tere ake nei
He rite ki te au o te reo Māori
Ahakoa he iti noa
He pounamu e

I tupu ake ahau i tēnei reo
He reo kainga, he reo mana
He reo tuku iho, tūpuna e
He reo rangatira e

(Korihi)

He reo motuhake, mana Māori
Te tino rangatiratanga
E akiaki ana
Kia kōrero te reo

Kei nga kohanga reo, kura kaupapa
Puta atu ki nga Wharekura
E kawe ana i to tātou reo
Kia kore e memeha rā

He mihi atu rā ki a rātou mā
I para i te huarahi
Kia tupu mataora tō tātou reo
I tēnei whakatupuranga

(Korihi)

He iti pioke no Rangaunu
He au tona e tere ake nei
Ko Te Rangi Aniwaniwa e tū ake nei
Whaia te tino rangatiratanga
