God Defend New Zealand A.K.A. The New Zealand National Anthem

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
Men of ev'ry creed and race
Gather here before Thy face
Asking Thee to bless this place
O nga Iwi Matoura
From dissenshion, envy, hate
And corruption guard our State
Make our country good and great

Peace, not war, shall be our boast
But, should foes assail our coast
Make us then a mighty host
God defend our Free Land

Lord of battles in thy might
Put our enemies to flight
Let our cause be just and right
God defend New Zealand

Ata whaka rongona
Let our love for Thee increase
May Thy blessings never cease
Give us plenty, give us peace
Me aroha noa
From dishonour and from shame
Guard our country's spotless name
Crown her with immortal fame

Kia hua ko te pai
May our mountains ever be
Freedom's ramparts on the sea
Make us faithful unto Thee
God defend our Free Land
Kia tau to atawhai
Guide her in the nations' van
Preaching love and truth to man
Working out Thy Glorious plan

Manaakitia mai
Aotearoa
God defend our Free Land
God defend New Zealand
