Hayley Westenra - God Defend New Zealand lyrics

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

E Ihoa Atua
O nga Iwi! Matoura
Ata whakarongona
Me aroha roa
Kia hua ko te pai
Kia tau to atawhai
Manaakitia mai
Aotearoa

Men of every creed and race
Gather here before thy face
Asking thee to bless this place
God defend our free land
From dissension, envy, hate
And corruption guard our state
Make our country good and great
God defend New Zealand
