Our Father

E to mātou Matua i te rangi, 
Kia whakatapua tou ingoa, 
Kia tae mai tou rangatiratanga, 
Kia whakaritea tou hiahia i te whenua 
Kia pera ano i tō te rangi. 
Homai ki a mātou äianei he taro ma 
mātou mo tēnei ra. 
Whakakahoretia o mātou hara, me mātou 
e whakakore nei i ngā hara o te hunga e hara ana ki a mātou. 
Kaua mātou e tukua kia whakawaia, 
Engari whakaorangia mātou i te kino. Amene. 

Our Father in heaven. 
Hallowed be your name, 
your kingdom come, 
your will be done, 
on earth as in heaven. 
Give us today our daily bread. 
Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us. 
Save us from the time of trial and deliver us from evil. Amen.
