Aloha Hōnaunau

chant by Kīhei de Silva, music by Manu Boyd

 

Aloha Hōnaunau Makaokalani

I ke ahe ʻolu o ʻEhukaimalino

ʻO ke ʻehu ʻoe no Kānepōhākaʻa

Hoʻokaʻa ʻia i ke alo o ka moku

 

He moku ke aliʻi Kūikekaʻai

A he moku ke aliʻi ʻo Keaweʻī

ʻO ke koʻiaweawe, ʻo ke koʻiʻula

ʻO ka hoʻokū, ʻo ka moe, ʻo ka pao

 

Kū ka pao a ka lani i kāleʻa ai

ʻO Kaikiʻaleʻa i ʻAkahipapa

ʻAkahi nō a komo ke anu iaʻu

Nāhā ka hale i ka nalu o Nāihe

 

ʻOhi nō ka nalu nui a koe kēia

ʻO ka lei moʻopuna a Kaʻōleiokū

He kūpaoa, he ʻaʻala i ka niu maka

Ua hoʻonōlaʻe ʻia e ka lani

 

ʻO ka lani ʻōpuʻu hou i ka ʻāina

Me ka lima wela ʻole, e ʻole hoʻi

E hoʻi nō ke kapu i ka pae moku

No Pauahilaninui lā he inoa

アロハ・ホーナウナウ
