“LEI HULU MAMO.”

Auhea wale oe Lei Hulu Mamo,
O ka lei kohu a o kuu papale,
Hookohu ka opua me ka naulu,
Kau mai la i ka lae a o Mololani,
Aniani he kilohi mau oe no’u,
A ke kehau a i hali mai nei,
O ke ko mai hoi a ke kehau,
I mehana iho au a i ko poli.
O oe a owau ka i ike iho,
I ka eha lima ole a ke aloha.
Ia aloha ia no a o Haiku,
E walea ae nei me Kilohana,
O ka hana paha ia a ke aloha,
Kohu wai mapuna ka puapua’i;
Kaomi iho au he ole ka paa,
Pakela ke koii hana nowelo,
Hoona ae ana i ko aloha,
A i kahi Lei Rose a kaua,
Ua lei no oe lei no au,
Me ka opua hiki o ke ahiahi,
Mahope hoi au ou hookahi,
A lei i ka lei o ka lanakila.
Kilohi ae au ia Hiilaniwai,
Ia wai kaulana o ka aina.
Haina ia mai ana ka puana,
Kuu Lei Hulu Mamo ua hiki mai.
