lyrics

Rū nui, rū roa
Riu nui, riu roa
Rua nui, rua roa
Te rū i riu
Te rū i te rua
Te rū i mokotia
Te riu i mokotia
Te rua i mokotia
Ruaimoko, Ruaimoko, Ruaimoko

Ka tanuku koa te tihi o Aorangi, ka tanuku
E rere rā taki atu taki mai ngā wai o Waitaki, e rere rā
E rere rā taki mai ngā waipuke i aku kamo, e rere rā

Aku kura ki te hau
Nāku i tiki i te pōuriuri
I te pō tangotango
I a Hinemanuhiri, i a Ruaimoko
E tuki rā i te whēnua

Nā Te Kāhautu Maxwell i whakapākehātia.English translation by Te Kāhautu Maxwell

Causing earthquakes
Creating valleys
Creating caverns
Earthquakes creating valleys
Earthquakes creating caverns
The earthquake that tattooed the land
The valleys that tattooed the land
The caverns that tattooed the land
Ruaimoko God of earthquakes tattooer of the land

The summit of Aorangi has collapsed, has fallen
The waters of the Waitaki ebb and flow, likewise the tears of my eyes well fourth

The loved ones that I seek out in the darkest night
The never ending night of Hinemanuhiri
And where Ruaimoko resides whom shakes the land violently
