Our tribe

is calling to the people

who have just set foot on this marae

Bring with you the memories of all our dead

and so many tears spilling forth nation-wide.

Look at our people working across the land spread out far and wide

Shaking is the ground, quivering is the sea.

Oh the love and the pain within me.

The ground shakes and quivers!
