VI. He Wa Wawata Roa! Kua Huri Nei

VI. He Wa Wawata Roa! Kua Huri Nei.

(Rangi: Life's Dream is o'er! Farewell.)

1.

I moea iho e au
E awhi ana mai to wairua:
Ka whakatata mai koe
Ka piri mai ki au.
Ka puao te ata,
Ka mahea nga wawata:
A, me he wairua
E maheno atu nei.
page 40 Chorus:
Nga anahera: tiro iho kia aroha.
Tiakina i nga kino
He aha koe te maku ai.
E mo te wa nei, e noho mo te wa nei
Te wa tino reka nei
E hotu nei te manawa
He wa wawata roa, kua huri nei
Haere ra! haere ra!

2.

He ao e pahemo
He taonga e memeha,
Ka nunumi atu
Nga pae ki te korenga.
Waihoki te aroha
E kore ra e pumau.
He waha e haerea
Te ai he maunga ringa mai.
