MBIE karakia

Tāwhia tō mana kia mau, kia māia
Ka huri taku aro ki te pae kahurangi,
kei reira te oranga mōku
Mā mahi tahi, ka ora, ka puāwai
Ā mātau mahi katoa, ka pono, ka tika
Tihei mauri ora

Retain and hold fast to your mana, be bold, be brave
We turn our attention to the future,
that’s where the opportunities lie
By working together we will flourish and achieve greatness
Taking responsibility to commit to doing things right
Tihei mauri ora
