‘The Grace’ in Te Reo Maori.

I had a message from a friend asking if I had ‘The Grace’ in Te Reo Maori. I was sure I did. I’d used it before. But it actually proved more difficult to find that I expected. In the effort of making it easier for you (and me) next time, here it is.

Kia tau ki a tatou katoa
   Descend upon us

Te atawhai o tatou Ariki
   The grace of our Lord
o Ihu Karaiti
   of Jesus Christ
Me te aroha o te Atua
   The love of God
me te whiwhinga tahitanga
   and the fellowship
ki te Wairua Tapu
   of the Holy Spirit
a ake ake
   be with you for evermore
Amine
   Amen

    last of the 5 booklets in the “Gift Toward Partnership” pack produced by Diane Gilliam-Weeks when she was Director of Communications, a great resource.

  • Diane says PCANZ holds the copyright so probably talk with Wayne. I have a feeling that Jason Goroncy may have scanned them some years ago but I’m not sure what happened to them

  • The Presbyterian Research Centre are in the process of digitising these booklets.
