Ko te Awa te mātāpuna o te ora

    The river is the source of spiritual and physical sustenance

    E rere kau mai te Awa nui mai i te Kāhui Maunga ki Tangaroa

    The great River flows from the mountains to the sea

    Ko au te Awa, ko te Awa ko au

    I am the River and the River is me

    Ngā manga iti, ngā manga nui e honohono kau ana, ka tupu hei Awa Tupua

    The small and large streams that flow into one another form one River
