God Defend New Zealand.
October 31, 2020

Our national anthem :

E ihowa atua,
O nga iwi matou ra
Ata whakarangona
Me aroha noa
Kia hua ko te pai
Kia tau to atawhai
Manaakitia mai

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.

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.

Peace, not war, shall be our boast
But should our 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.

Let our love for thee increase
May thy blessings never cease
Give us plenty, give us peace
God defend our free land
From dishonour and from shame
Guard our country's spotless name
Crown her with immortal fame
God defend New Zealand.

May our mountains ever be
Freedom's ramparts on the sea
Make us faithful unto thee
God defend our free land
Guide her in the nation's van
Preaching love and truth to man
Working out thy glorious plan
God defend New Zealand.
