|Tuia ki raro||To the terrestrial energies|
|Tuia ki roto||within|
|Tuia ki waho||and without|
|Tuia te here tangata||Bind the kinship strands of humanity|
|Tūturu o whiti||Permanent, consistent are the fibres of light|
|Whakamaua kia tina||Draw these matters to a single point and give them substance|
|Tina! Haumi e, hui e||The wisdom is bound,it collects|
|Taiki e!||It is held|
