E te Atua kaha rawa
i hoatu e koe ki a Wiremu Tamihana
he whakakitenga i tau i whakatakoto ai,
a me te whakapumautanga o tou aroha me tou mana.
Meinga ano hoki ki a matou,
kia mau pu ki te tumanako
kei roto nei i a Ihu Karaiti
te Huarahi, te Pono, me te Ora.
save us from the time of trial,
and deliver us from evil.
you see that we have no power of ourselves
to help ourselves;
keep us both outwardly in our bodies
and inwardly in our souls,
that we may be defended from all adversities
which may happen to the body,
and from all evil thoughts
which may assault and hurt the soul.
