Hymn of Praise for Northland

God, creator, redeemer, life-giver

eternal, ever-present God.

We praise you in the heights of Maungamuku

the Brynderwyns and Tangihuas.

We praise you in the reaches

of the Kaipara and the Hokianga,

on the coastal land and beaches washed by the Pacific.

We praise you in the peaks

of Hikurangi and Tutumoe

We praise you in the valleys and lowlands.

You bless us in the lush forests

of Puketi, Waipoua, and Trounson

the sand-dunes on the west and the coves and bays of the east.

In the everflowing waters of the Wairoa

and its upper reaches,

and the streams that meander down a thousand valley beds.

By them the earth is watered and enriched,

And the waters below refreshed and sustained.

This land sustains us

Bears the burden of us

And offers us its fruitfulness.

We praise you God, creator, redeemer, life-giver

The source of our land and our being.

Source of our hope and our dreaming

Source of our salvation and our healing.

You call us and gather us

As the people of this place and the people of this time.

We come into your presence

celebrating your gifts to us

the gift of each other,

the gift of your Word

the gift of your Wisdom.

Accept the song of our hearts and minds.
