KARAKIA

Cease the winds from the West

Cease the winds from the South

Let the breezes blow over the land

Let the breezes blow over the ocean

Let the red-tipped dawn come

With a sharpened air, a touch of frost, a promise of a glorious day

Behold the breath of life
Amen

KARAKIA A TE ATUA (The Lord's Prayer)

E to mātou matua i te rangi

Kia tapu tōu ingoa

Kia tae mai tōu rangatiratanga

Kia meatia tau e pai ai

Ki runga ki te whenua

Kia rite anō ki tō te rangi

Hōmai ki a mātou āianei

He taro mā mātou mō tēnei rā

Murua o mātou hara

Me mātou hoki e muru nei

I o te hunga e hara ana

Ki a mātou

Aua hoki mātou e kawea kia whakawaia

Engari whakaorangia mātou i te kino

Nāu hoki te rangatiratanga te kaha me te korōria

Āke, ake ake

Āmine

Forever and ever
