Ko te mea nui
Karanga, mihia, te aroha, ki a koutou e … aue..
As we send forth our heartfelt love and affection to you all
Kua tae ki te wā, whakahoki, ki te kainga e
Time is nigh, for our departure homeward
Truth is important in our reflections
As is hope
Ko te mea nui… ko te whānau ko te tangata, te mea nui ..
However, the most important thing, is family, and people
Te whānau, te tangata, te mea nui, te mea nui ..
Family, and people, the greatest thing of all
