Anō te pai, anō te ahuareka o te nohoanga o ngā tēina o ngā tuākana i runga i te whakaaro kotahi.
Waiata 133: 1

How good and pleasant a thing it is when God’s people live together in unity. 
Psalm 133: 1

God, the sovereign of all, 

your word is law in every quarter. 

Speak your words again; 

hold before us the words of Waitangi, 

signed by Māori and Pākehā alike to seal their covenant; 

make the treaty they established in Aotearoa 

a beacon light for the days ahead; 

through Christ, our guide, our way. 

God of our nation, 

you have called us to care for one another; 

cleanse our eyes to see each other clearly; 

open our hearts to know our own mistakes; 

build in us respect for each other’s taonga; 

help us to do justice to one another 

and to hope together. 

God of covenant and calling, 

you bind us together; 

keep us faithful to our calling 

and true to our promises.
