Lagu kebangsaan Selandia Baru ini menurut gw bagus banget, liriknya mirip doa-doa extended version di pengajian-pengajian.😀

God Defend New Zealand

E Ihowā Atua, (O Lord)

O ngā iwi mātou rā, (of all people)

Āta whakarangona, (Listen to us)

Me aroha noa. (Cherish us.)

Kia hua ko te pai, (May good flourish)

Kia tau tō atawhai, (may your blessings flow)

Manaakitia mai (defend)

Aotearoa (New Zealand)

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 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 nations’ van,

Preaching love and truth to man,

Working out Thy glorious plan,

God defend New Zealand.
