Heretaunga | Hastings | Napier
Heretaunga haukū nui
Heretaunga haaro o Te Kaahu
Heretaunga takotoa noa
Heretaunga of life giving dew
Heretaunga of Arcadian pathways
Heretaunga, beauty of which can only be seen by the hawk
Heretaunga that has been left to us, the humble servants

Taku hei piripiri
Taku hei mokimoki
Taku hei tāwhiri
Taku kati taramea
E koe ngā mauku o te motu
Ka mate a maruwehea
My little pendant of sweet-scented moss
My little pendant of sweet-scented fern
My little pendant of odoriferous gum
My little pendant of aromatic smells
You are a descendant fern of this land
And the people who have passed on
