[A NAME SONG FOR KALANAIANAOLE

1 A name song for you, O Kalanianaole
You are a precious one of the lahui.

2 Here we are, your multitudes
Upon the homesteads.

3 You sought for our benefits with patience
For the good of your people.

4 Long live all of your youth, O Chief
From the lofty heavens.

5 The power of the Trinity gives assistance
For the equal rights of the lahui.

6 Keaukaha is proud
A land of beauty and goodness.

7 Glorious and handsome to see
Are the proud homes of the many.

8 Honored is the Chief sitting there above
In the loving bosom of the Heavenly Father.

9 May Keaukaha live on forever
Through your well being, O expansive Hawaii.

10 We call this name song for you O Chief
Kalanianaole is your name.

11 We call out to you, you call out in return
Kuhio, the loving representative of the lahui.
