Ka Mate

 

Ka Mate – Te Rauparaha

Ka mate ka mate!  Ka ora ka ora!

Ka mate ka mate!  Ka ora ka ora!        

Tēnei te tangata puhuruhuru

Nana i tiki mai whakawhiti te rā

Hupane, kaupane

Hupane, kaupane  Whiti te rā,  Hī!

 

 

I die! I die! I live! I live!
I die! I die! I live! I live!
This is the hairy man
Who fetched the Sun
And caused it to shine again
One upward step!

Another upward step!
An upward step, another …

the sun shines!
