Karakia


Karakia
Written by Patrick Gemmell for Pt England School

E te kaihanga o ngā hau o ngā rangi mai tawhiti
E rere iho nei ki te moana
Kawea nei i o mātou whakaaro
Hei whetū mārama
Mo ngā mahi kei te whai mai.
Kōkiri tōku hāere
I te ao e, i te ao e
Amene 

To the creator of the prevailing winds which ascend from afar
Toward a coastal tide
Carry with you our inner thoughts
Imprint them among the heavens, as a guiding constellation
For the tasks ahead
To strengthen my journey
Each day, each day
Amen 

Korero Maia - Used before leaving Te Reo Class (Seniors)
 Kia *houhou te rongo
i te akomanga
i te kura
i ngā mahi
kia hère
kia maia
kia tau e, kia tau e
 May we have peaceful passage
to our next class activity
within this school
within all our tasks
Which bind us,
which humble us,
which settle our souls
Korero maia - when you transition to your next classes,  continue the standards that you bring to Te Reo class.
*houhou (to invoke peace and tranquility)


Karakia Timatatanga - starting prayer


Whakatuwheratia mai te kuaha

o te pono, o te tika, o te matauranga,

me te aroha

a ma matou e whakamoemiti

E whakakororiatia tou ingo tapu

ake, ake, ake 

Amine 




Open the door of truth, 

righteousness, of knowledge 

and love

through us, we are praising 

glory to your name

forever and ever 

Amen



Karakia Whakamutunga - Ending Prayer


Kia tau kia tatou katoa

Te atawhai o to tatou ariki

A ihu karaiti

Me te aroha o te atua

Me te whiwhingatahitanga 

Ki te wairua tapu  

Ake ake ake

Amine 




May the grace of 

the lord Jesus Christ

the love of God 

and the fellowship of the holy spirit

be with each and everyone of us

Now and forevermore 

Amen 



Karakia Kai:

E te Kaihanga, te pātaka, e hōmai ēnei hua.
To our creator who is the storehouse of all sustenance

Tēnā koe mō ngā taonga katoa
Thank you for all these gifts (Thank you for this wonderful bounty)

E tipu e, e tipu e
Which you have given, (That continues to grow and flourish x2)

Āmine
Amen




Karakia for activities:

E te kaihanga.
To the creator above

I roto i ngā mahi,
In our work

manaaki mai,
care for us

tiaki mai i ngā whakaaro,
in our thoughts

i ngā kōrero
and our talk

Hei tau, hei tau e
To settle, to settle


Amene
Amen
