Purea Nei

Purea Nei, e te hau
Hordia e te ua (a a )
Whitiwhitia, e te ra
Mahea ake nga poraruraru
Makere ana, nga here

E rere, wairua e rere
Ki nga ao, ote rangi (i i)
Whitiwhitia, e te ra
Mahea ake nga poraruraru
Makere ana, nga here

Phonetic spelling

Fitti, fitti ah, etay ra
Mahay ah kay nga, poraruraru
Mar keray a na nga hayray

Translation:

Cleansed by the wind, washed by the rains
Warmed by the sun, free of cares,
Links abandoned

Soar my spirit, to the realms of the sky,
into the arms of the sun,
Carefree and boundless
