On the Lonely Beach of Oihi Bay Hymn

Use the music player below to listen to the Oihi Bay Hymn.

Music Phillip Saunders / words Bishop Ted Buckle (original words altered and chorus added by Phillip Saunders).

 

 

On the lonely beach of Oihi Bay
There stands a cross of granite grey
It speaks of efforts mankind employ
To bring the news of Christian joy

 

Karanga mai, karanga mai,
Whakarongo ki te rongopai

 

Now on our land the church does still
Proclaim that goal of peace, goodwill
All people of quite different race
Midst forest sea and land find space

 

Karanga mai, karanga  mai,
Whakarongo ki te rongopai

 

For here in Northland still we see                        
The Christ, God’s gift of harmony
Entwines us in a bonding grace
Of love and hope for the human race

 

Karanga mai, karanga  mai,
Whakarongo ki te rongopai

 

Karanga mai, karanga  mai,
Whakarongo ki te rongopai
