IHENGA Lyrics:
Ka tū au runga Maketū
[I stand here in Maketū]

Te kaihōpara o te ao
[The explorer of the land]

Ka huri au ki uta
[I turn inland]

Kia Kaituna, kī ana mātou puku
[To Kaituna, where our bellies are filled]

Mai nga kurī ngā īnanga puta mai
[The dogs have thrown up whitebait]

E piki te maunga, titiro e...
[I climb the mountain and see]

Ko Te roto i kite a Īhenga!
[The lake I saw (Lake Rotoiti)]

Te motu tapu a Tinirau!
[The sacred island of Tinirau]

Roto i te Rotorua nui a Kahumatamomoe!
[In the second larger lake of Kahumatamomoe]

Huri mātou ki te tūāraki
[We turn to the North]

Ki te Mānuka, komohia te pou!
[To the Mānuka (Manukau), where we place a stake in the ground to claim this place]

Ki te Kaiparapara a Kahumatamomoe!
[To the Kaiparapara (Kaipara) of Kahumatamomoe]

Kī nga puku anō...
[Where we fill our bellies again]
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ka hāpai ki te tūāraki
[We continue North]

Runga i te Wairoa kia Kawakawa
[Along the Wairoa river, towards Kawakawa]

Ki te Kai hū ki te Waikereru!
[To the place of the secret meal and Waikereru]

Kia Ruapekapeka! me te Motatau
[To Ruapekapeka, and Motatau]

Me te Tapu waewae haruru me Te wāhi whakatā
[To the place of resounding footsteps and the place of self reflection]

Ka huri mātou anō...
[We turn once again]

Anō ki Whāngarei!
[Again towards Whāngarei]

Ki Te ahi pūpū
[To Te ahi pūpū]

Piki ake Whatitiri maunga
[I climb mount Whatitiri]

E kapo te uira!!!
[The lightning cracks]

Te maunga Moehau!!!
[The mountain Moehau]

E piki ana!!!
[I climb]
