  • Koro Roihi
    E kore koe e kaumātuatia.
    Pēnei i a tātou kua mahue nei.
    E kore hoki koe e ngoikore,
    ahakoa pēhea i ngā āhuatanga o te wā.
    I te hekenga atu o te rā,
    tae noa i te aranga mai i te ata,
    ka maumahara tonui tātou i a koe.
    Ka maumahara tonu tātou i a koutou.
