lyrics

Beneath the Southern Cross. 
By Cate Burton and Malcolm Gordon

From the ends of the earth we will sing
God is here, the Kingdom is near
In the land of the long white cloud
Christ to dwell, Emmanuel

From north and south
From east and west
Beneath the Southern Cross we rest
Found by One
Who came for all
In this tale of spacious love we’re born

This whenua 
on which we stand
This holy ground made by God’s hand
Marred and scarred 
Yet marked by grace
Held and healed, in Christ we find our place

From the ends of the earth we will sing
God is here, the Kingdom is near
In the land of the long white cloud
Christ to dwell, Emmanuel

God of nations
At thy feet
In the bonds of love we meet
Strangers once
Now called as one
Aotearoa, wake to greet this love

From the ends of the earth we will sing
God is here, the Kingdom is near
In the land of the long white cloud
Christ to dwell, Emmanuel

From the ends of the earth we will sing
God is here, the Kingdom is near
In the land of the long white cloud
Christ to dwell, Emmanuel

From north and south
From east and west
Beneath the Southern Cross we rest.
Found by One
Who came for all
In this tale of spacious love we’re born
