Mau rakau


Karakia: Mau Rākau for Te Whare Tū taua ki Ukutoia

E te Kaihanga o tōku rākau
Oh sabre formed from Tāne Mahuta

E rere atu ana i roto i tēnei wānanga
Which binds me with you within this school of higher learning

Piri mai ngā whakaaro o ōku tupuna
May I be comforted by the guidance of my ancestors

hei manaaki i au
to aid my journey

Āmene
Amen
