    The Ode of Remembrance

    They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:

    Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

    At the going down of the sun, and in the morning,

    We remember them.

    E kore rātou e kaumātuatia

    Pēnei i a tātou kua mahue nei

    E kore hoki rātou e ngoikore

    Ahakoa pehea i ngā āhuatanga o te wā

    I te hekenga atu o te rā

    Tae noa ki te arangamai i te ata

    Ka maumahara tonu tātou ki a rātou

    Ka maumahara tonu tātou ki a rātou
