Po Ata Rau - Now Is The Hour
Maewa Kaihan, Clement Scott, Dorothy Steward

Po ata rau, e moea ino nei
E haere ana, koe ki pamamao
Haere ra ka hoki mai ano
Ki i te tau e tangi atu nei

Sunset glow fades in the west
Night over the valley is creeping
Birds cuddle down in their nest
Soon all the world will be sleeping and

Now is the hour
When we must say good-bye
Soon you’ll be sailing
Far across the sea
While you’re away
O, then remember me
When you return
You’ll find me waiting here
