THE ODE — I ROTO I TE REO MAORI

KA MAUMAHARA TONU TATOU KI A RATOU

THE ODE IN ENGLISH

THEY SHALL GROW NOT OLD
AS WE THAT ARE LEFT GROW OLD
AGE SHALL NOT WEARY THEM
NOR THE YEARS CONDEMN
AT THE GOING DOWN OF THE SUN
AND IN THE MORNING
WE WILL REMEMBER THEM

WE WILL REMEMBER THEM

TAE NOA KI TE MUTUNGA unto the end
AMENE
