May peace be widespread

Maori

Kia Hora Te Marino

Kia hora te marino,
Kia whakapapa pounamu te moana,
Kia tere te rohirohi
Kia hora te marino
te marino ara
mo ake tonu ake

Ka tuhoa te ra,
ka wairara, ka hinga.

Hutia te rito,
Hutia te rito o te harakeke.
Kei hea te komako e ko?
Ki mai ki ahau
He aha te mea nui i te ao?
Maku e ki atu e,
He tangata (katoa), he tangata, he tangata ei!

Tihei mauri ora
A whiti whano hara mai te toki,

humie e hui e taiki e!

May peace be widespread

May peace be widespread,
may the sea glisten like greenstone,
and may the shimmer of light guide you
May peace be widespread,
Be widespread
Now and forever more.
Said of human life.
The sun rises to the zenith, then
declines.
Pull out the centre,
Pull out the centre of the flax plant,
Where will the bellbird sing?
I ask myself
What is the greatest thing in the world?
My answer is,
(All) the people, the people, the people!
The fi rst breath we take.
Bind the entire fl esh of our group and
bring it into force like the axe.
Gather, gather and go forward!
