He hōnore, he korōria
he maungārongo ki te whenua,
he whakaaro pai ki ngā tāngata katoa
E koro- Taranaki
pataka iringa korero
maunga toka tū
maunga ahuru mowai o te iwi
Whāngaitia te auaha i roto kia tupu, kia puāwai ai.
Nōku te hōnore ki te mihi ki nga ringa raupā,
na rātou te māia ki te whakatinana
te taiwhanga Govett-Brewster mai, i tōna timatanga.
Ina ako tātau ki te mārama
ki te hua o te rerenga kāwanatanga,
ka mōhio tātau, kai te pakeke tātau.
Ko te aroha he huānga māia i roto i tēnā .
He aha te mea nui o te ao?
