Waiata #3 to learn: E toru ngā mea

E toru ngā mea
Ngā mea nunui
E kī ana
Te Paipera
Whakapono
Tūmanako
Ko te mea nui
Ko te aroha

In English:

There are three
Great things
That are spoken of
In the Bible
Faith
Hope
And the greatest of all
Love

This is an inspirational waiata about the importance of guiding your life by the principles of faith, hope, and love — aroha. Aroha means more than simply love — it can mean caring and sharing and also supporting people.

This waiata can be sung unaccompanied. It is in the call and response style and needs a strong singer to lead it. Alternatively, use two groups and then swap their parts.
