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!
