Written for the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church of Aotearoa New Zealand in October 2014 by Rev Catherine Burton and Rev Malcolm Gordon.

lyrics

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, Immanuel

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, Immanuel

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, Immanuel
