Lei o Kaahumanu, 1916.

LEI O KAAHUMANU.

Lei Kaahumanu i ke aloha,
Lei haaheo i ka lanakila;
Lei i ka mamo hulu melemele,
Lei Hawaii i kou inoa.

Hui:

E ala e ka I ame ka Mahi,
E ala na kini o ka aina;
Hookahi puuwai me ka lokahi,
E ola ka inoa o Kaahumanu.

Eia ko lei e lei ai,
Na ke aloha i lawe mai nei;
I lei hoohie mau ia nou,
E ola ka inoa o Kaahumanu.

LEI OF KAAHUMANU.

Kaahumanu is adorned with a lei of aloha,
A proud lei in victory;
Adorned with the yellow-feathered mamo,
Hawaii is adorned by your name.

Chorus:

Rise, O I and Mahi,
Rise, O People of the land;
With one heart and in unity,
May the name of Kaahumanu live.

Here is the lei for you to wear,
Carried here by aloha;
It is an ever distinguished lei for you,
May the name of Kaahumanu live.
