Blessing of Neighbourliness

May neighbourliness —
that attitude of caring about others
of sharing fairly
of appreciating enterprise
of fostering new ideas
of paying equitably
of respectful relationships
of believing in the common good
here and around the world —
be at home in us
E ihowa Atua o ngā iwi mātou rā
God of all nations.
