Tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou, tēnā katou katoa

Ko Mahkoteewi me Sikaakwa tōku whenua
Ko Kihcikami tōku roto
Ko Te Moananui a Kiwa tōku moana
Ko Imnizaska tōku mauka
Ko Ōtākaro tōku awa
Ko Ngāti Pākehā tōku iwi
Ko ngā Raffensperger tōku whanau
Ko Rebecca Grace Hill ahau

No reira, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou, tēnā tatou katoa.

Greetings, greetings, greetings to you all,

The Prairies and Plains, the place of nourishment
The Great Lake Michigan, the water of refreshment
The Pacific Ocean, the sea of transition
The White Cliff, the mount of ascension
The Avon, the river of propinquity
Raffensperger, the name of consanguinity
Imported, both the bones of the ancestors and me
And so it is that I, Rebecca Hill came to be

Therefore, greetings, greetings, greetings to us all
