Ka Lei O Ka Hikina

Lyrics by Amy Ku'uleialoha Stillman

Music by Daniel Ho

 

He wehi kuʻu lei ma ka hikina

I wili ʻia e ka noe me ke hau

 

Kuʻi e ka lono i nā wai nui ʻelima

A hiki i ka ʻāina loa o Kina

 

Kaulana i ka naʻauao hou

He ipu kukui mālamalama

 

Ua like nō me ka moana loa

A he moku nui no ka hanauna hou

 

Haʻina ʻia mai ana ka puana

No ka lei o ka hikina kuʻu aloha nō

My lei is an adornment from the east

Mist braided together with dew

The renown is heard throughout the five large waters

And reaches the distant land of China

Famous is the new knowledge

A receptacle of enlightenment

As vast as the ocean

And a vessel sailing in distant seas

The story is told

Of my love for the lei of the east
