Aloha Aina, 1871 / 2014.

“Ka Hae Nani o Hawaii,
E mau kona welo ana.”

[“The Beautiful Flag of Hawaii
Let her wave for all times.”]

(Black & Auld Printers, Honolulu, H. I.)

E ola ka Moi i ke Akua.

Composed by His Highness, W. C. Lunalilo.

1. Ke Akua mana mau,
Hoomaikai, pomaikai
I ka Moi!
Kou lima mana mau,
Malama, kiai mai
Ko makou nei Moi,
E ola e!

2. Ka inoa kamahao
Lei nani o makou,
E ola e!
Kou eheu uhi mai,
Pale na ino e,
Ka makou pule nou,
E ola e!

3. Imua ou makou,
Ke ‘Lii o na Alii,
E aloha mai;
E mau ke ea e
O ke aupuni nei,
E ola mau makou,
Me ka Moi.

God Save the King.

Translated by Rev. L. Lyons.

1. Eternal, might God,
Bless, from they bright abode,
Our Sovereign King;
May thy all-powerful arm
Ward from our Sire all harm,
Let no vile foe alarm,
Long may he reign!

2. Royal, distinguished name,
Our beauteous diadem,
Long life be thine;
Thy wing spread o’er our land,
From every wrong defend,
For thee our prayers ascend,
Long live our King!

3. Before thee, King of Kings,
Of whom all nature sings,
Our prayer we bring;
Oh, let our Kingdom live,
Life, peace and union give,
Let all they care receive;
Bless thou our King!

[The Hawaiian flag in the original newspaper is printed in color.]
