On the death of Joseph Nawahi, 1896.

NAWAHIOKALANIOPUU.

Nani Nawahiokalaniopuu,
Pohakuhauoli o Hawaii,
O ka oi kelakela hookahi,
Ma ke kupaa no ka aina.

Cho. Ua pau, ua nalo kou hiona,
Ua nalo ka lohe’na i kou leo,
Hamau na mea a pau,
Ka manao luuluu i ke aloha.

Onipaa Hawaii a puni,
Hooholo like ka manao,
I hookahi ka puana me ka lokahi,
Hoomau i ke aloha aina.

[Nawahiokalaniopuu.

Glorious is Nawahiokalaniopuu
Gladstone of Hawaii
He is the greatest
In loyalty to the land

Cho. Your visage is gone, is no more
No more will your voice be heard
Everyone is silent
Grieving with aloha

All Hawaii  is steadfast
Unified in thought
Let the refrain be told in unison
Remain steadfast in our patriotism

(Aloha Aina, 10/10/1896, p. 7)
