Tama Ngakau Marie
“Tama Ngakau Marie”
Tama ngakau marie,
Tama a te Atua;
Tenei tonu matou,
Arohaina mai.

Murua ra nga hara
Wetekina mai
Enei here kino
Whakararu nei.

Takahia ki raro
Tau e kino ai
Kei pakaha tonu
Ko nga mahi he.

Homai he aroha
Mou I mate nei
Tenei ra e
Ihu Takina e koe

Tenei arahina
Atutki noa
Puta I te pouri
Whiwhi hari nui

Tama Ngakau Marie
Tama a te Atua
Tenei tonu matou
Arahina mai. Amine

Himene

Te Ariki Hei A Au Koe Noho Ai
(Tune Abide with Me)

Te Ariki hei a au koe noho ai
He pono hoki tenei no te ra;
Tupono noa nga mate o te Ao
Kia tata mai a au koe noho ai.

Nga ra e ora ai te Tangata,
Ano he tai e timu atu nei;
E koe, te take o te orange,
Ki tata mai a au koe noho ai.

Mau ano ra ka tino pono ai,
He whainga tupu ki te hoa whawhai;
Mau ano au e ata arahi;
Kia tata mai a au koe noho ai.

E kore au e ohooho noa,
I enei he e whakararu nei;
E karo au nga whakawai katoa;
E toa ahau; kia tata mai ia koe.

Whakaaria mai tou Ripeka ki a au;
Tiaho Mai ra roto I te Po:
Ki kona au titiro atu ai;
Ora mate, hei a au koe Noho ai.
Amine.

Whanau thank you for your aroha and tautoko.
