Ka poipoia ahau i te po

Ka poipoia ahau i te po 

Marino e

Te korowai o te Atua

O taku whare okioki

 

Tera nga whetu korikoriko

Te marama tai ahoaho

Hei hoa moku i te poho

O taku whare okioki

 

He kapua i te Ikaroa

Moku mo aku takahanga

Hei hoa moku i te poho

O taku whare okioki

 

"I rest in the calm, still night.

The stars and the sky act as the cloak of God and becomes my place of rest.

The sparkling stars are out, so is the full moon.

They become my companions in my house of rest.

The clouds in the Milky Way are showing me my pathway.

They become my companions in my house of rest."
