Another mele for La Kuokoa, 1871.

No ka La Kuokoa.

Leo.—A Victory, Happy Hours. p 144.

1. Ke kani nei na pahu e,
Ma keia la maikai;
E ala mai a oli ae,
La Kuokoa nei.
Ke kani nei na mele e
Mauka, a makai;
Maanei, ma o, a ma na puu,
Nani ke kani mai.

Cho—Hooho pu na kini nei,
Huza, huza, e oli e,
Huza, huza, huza, e oli e,
Huza, huza, huza, e oli e.

2. E oli e na kamalii,
Ma keia la maikai;
Aloha e i ka Moi,
Aloha na pokii;
Aloha na makua e,
I ko ke ao Alii,
Na ia la i haawi mai
Ke Kuokoa nei.

Cho—Hooho pu na kini nei, &c.,

3. Ua mau na hana a kakou,
Ka maluhia e,
Na hana no ka naauao,
A no na kino nei;
Ua paleia na kaua e,
A me na hakaka,
Na home me na kihapai,
Ua mau a oni paa.

Cho—Hooho pu na kini nei, &c.,

Hawaii.

[Pertaining to Independence Day.

Tune.—A Victory, Happy Hours. p. 144.

The drums sound,
On this fine day;
Rise up and rejoice,
This Independence Day.
The songs ring forth,
In the uplands, towards the sea;
Here, there, in the hills,
Beautiful they sound.

Cho—The multitudes exclaim,
Huzza, huzza, rejoice,
Huzza, huzza, huzza, rejoice,
Huzza, huzza, huzza, rejoice.

Sing, O Children,
On this fine day;
Aloha for the King,
Younger brothers give your aloha;
Parents give your aloha,
For that of the Chiefly realm,
Which gave us
This Independence.

Cho—The multitudes exclaim,

Our work goes on,
For peace,
And for education,
And for our bodies;
War is warded off,
And fighting,
Our homes and fields,
Remain steadfast.

Cho—The multitudes exclaim,]

[The person signing his name as “Hawaii” here is probably Lorenzo Lyons. The tune for this mele comes from the hymnal “Happy Hours”.]
