E Te Atua hoa hikoi,
God, companion on our journey:
We find you not only in the vastness of our universe,
but also walking close at our side.
As your Holy Spirit breathed over the primal waters,
Breathe fresh life into the plans we have adopted today.
Beckon us from this point of new beginnings,
to join our collective actions in the task we share.
As we rise to go to that place in time yet unnamed,
bless us and all those who count on us.
