Host - Te Kahu o Te Amorangi

Ko te amorangi ki mua, ko te hāpai-ō ki muri.

Te tūturutanga mahi pono o te Māori mana motuhake.

He mangōpare amohia o te waka tapu, Takitimu, hei whakakuititanga, hei whakakitenga.

E rere e te huata, hopukia!

E rere e te mānuka, tomokia!

 
E pari rā ngā tai ki te ākau. E hotu rā, ko taku manawa. Auē, haere rā e Te Amorangi o Te Toi Huarewa, Tama Tūranga Huata, koutou ko ngā tōtara haemata kua hinga i te wao nui a Tāne. Ko koutou mā ērā i poipoi i te kārohirohi o te haka a Tāne-rore. Haere atu rā! Haere atu rā! Moe mai rā!

 
Poi karanema o te māramatanga. Haere mai koutou ngā kanohi ora o te haka a Tāne-rore o te motu. Whākanakana mai ō karu, korikori mai ō rekereke, ō waewae! Tūtira mai ngā iwi! Tātau, tātau e!

Pōkarekare ana ngā wai o te motu. Whiti atu koutou katoa, marino ana e!

 Nau mai ki raro i te manaakitanga o Te Kahu o Te Amorangi, ki te riu o Ngati Kahungunu whānui, ki Heretaunga-haukū-nui, Heretaunga-ara-rau, Heretaunga-hārō-te-kāhu, takoto noa! Tika tonu, ue!
