The Air NZ Amazing Journeys tunes were composed in 2006 by Jim Hall, of Soundtrax, Auckland.
Māku e ringiringi kīaka o roimata,
Ara e ahu ana ki te kāinga
Kai te manatu au mo te whenua
O ōku tīpuna ki te kāinga
E awhi reinga,
E awhi tāua.
I will pour out jugfuls of tears
on the trail that leads to home
I am homesick for the land
of the old people of my village
We embrace with the spirits
when we embrace each other.
