The National Anthem

The National Anthem

Ever noticed how the national anthem doubles in volume when it gets to the English version... don't be THAT guy, learn the Māori version

E Ihowa Atua,
(Oh Lord, God)
O ngā iwi mātou rā,
(Of nations and of us too)
Āta whakarongona;
(Listen to us)
Me aroha noa
(Cherish us)
Kia hua ko te pai;
(Let goodness) flourish,
Kia tau tō atawhai;
(May your blessings flow)
Manaakitia mai
(Defend)

And while you are at it, learn the sign language version too!
