(Waiata/Song)

E toru ngā mea
Ngā mea nui
E kī ana
Te Paipera
Tūmanako
Whakapono
Ko te mea nui
Ko te aroha

 

There are three things
Very important things
As stated in
The Bible
Hope
Faith
And the greatest thing
Charity/ Love

 

 

(Waiata/Song)

Maku ra pea, maku ra pea
Maku koe, e awhi e
Ki te ara, ara tupu
Maku koe, e awhi e

 

Perhaps I will, perhaps I will
Perhaps I will, embrace you
to the path, the pathway
of growth, I will embrace you

 

 

(Waiata/Song)

 

Te Ariki, Te Ariki
Kua ara mai nei koeI te mate
Koro-pi-koria

Ko ihu Te Ariki

E ihu, Te Ariki
Te matamua
O te hunga mate
Koro-pi-koria
Whaka-atungia
Ko koe pu Te Ariki

 

He is Lord, He is Lord
He has risen from the dead
For he is Lord
Every knee shall bow
Every tongue confess
That Jesus Christ is Lord

 

He is Lord, He is Lord
He has risen from the dead
For he is Lord
Every knee shall bow
Every tongue confess
It is you, our Jesus Christ

 

 

(Waiata/Song)

 

Ehara i te mea
Nō nāianei te aroha
Nō nga tūpuna
Tuku iho, tuku ihoTe whenua, te whenua
Te oranga o te iwi
Nō nga tūpuna
Tuku iho, tuku iho

Whakapono, tumanako
Te aroha te aroha;
Nō nga tūpuna
Tuku iho, tuku iho.

 

Not the thing
of recent times, is love
but by the ancestors it has been
passed down, passed down.From the land, the land
comes the wellbeing of the people;
by the ancestors it has been
passed down, passed down.

Faith, hope
and love;
by the ancestors they have been
passed down, passed down

Maumaharatanga (Wreath Laying)

 

 

Ode to the Fallen

E kore rātou e kaumātuatia

Pēnei i a tātou kua mahue nei

E kore hoki rātou e ngoikore

Ahakoa pehea i  ngā āhuatanga o te wā

I te hekenga atu o te rā

Tae noa ki te aranga mai i te ata

Ka maumahara tonu tātou ki a rātou

Ka maumahara tonu tātou ki a rātou.

 

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun, and in the morning,

We will remember them

We will remember them.

Ahitereiria National Anthem

Naluyan Australiagal,
mudi ba nya mudung.
Nygin ni nurra marri,
ba-dgi balang.
Budgari bulbulwul,
gugaral ba nya.
Miwuna o nya marri nadu,
Naluyan Australiagal.
Bilya yabbun ba nya,
Naluyan Australiagal.

 

Australians all let us rejoice;
For we are young and free.
We’ve golden soil and wealth for toil;
Our home is girt by sea;
Our land abounds in nature’s gifts
Of beauty rich and rare;
In history’s page let every stage
Advance Australia Fair,
In Joyful strains then let us sing
Advance Australia Fair.

Aotearoa National Anthem 

E Ihowā Atua,
O ngā iwi mātou rā
Āta whakarangona; (see note about spelling of whakarangona)
Me aroha noa
Kia hua ko te pai;
Kia tau tō atawhai;
Manaakitia mai
Aotearoa.

 

God of Nations at Thy feet,
In the bonds of love we meet,
Hear our voices, we entreat,
God defend our free land.
Guard Pacific’s triple star
From the shafts of strife and war,
Make her praises heard afar,
God defend New Zealand.

Himene Whakamutunga (Closing Hymn)

 

Whakaaria mai
Tōu rīpeka ki au
Tiaho mai
Rā roto i te pō
Hei kona au
Titiro atu ai.
Ora, mate,
Hei au koe noho ai

 

Show
your cross to me.
Let it shine
there in the darkness.
To there I
will be looking.
In life, in death,
let me rest in thee.
