Pai Maarire - goodness and peace. This is a song to Te Ua Haumēne, the founder of Pai Maarire, which is the religion my family and iwi (tribe) have observed for hundreds of years).
Te Ua - Pai Maarire! (Te Ua, goodness and peace!) Ki a koe, aa, ki too Ua Rongopai (To you and to your Ua Gospel) I torona mai toou ringa (You stretched out your hand) I kii mai koe (And you said) Ko te ara o te hunga kino e ngaro (The path of the wicked shall perish) Kia kore ai raatou (So that they will be no more) Ka marino anoo te tai (The seas shall be calm again) Whakaorangia mai maatou i ngaa tauiwi (We will be delivered from the colonists) Kia toa ai (To be victorious) Ka puta mai ki a koe te anahera a Ihowa (The angel of the Lord appeared to you) Hau te korooria Hau te korooria Rire rire hau
