Eo, e Liliuonamoku! 2018.

HE INOA NO LILIUONAMOKU.

Kahiko ka nani i na kuahiwi,
Ka ohu halii i na pali,
He pali kapu kukilakila,
Mapu ke ala me ke onaona.

Hui:—He alii he wohi hoi keia,
A e hiipoi ia nei e ka Hui Nihoa,
Kohu wai mapunapuna,
E pua ae nei i ka puuwai.

Ianei pu mai kaua,
I ke kui lei pua alii,
I wilia pu ia me ke aloha,
Ka hoapili o ke kai Nihoa.

Hui Nihoa.

[A Name Song for Liliuonamoku.

Beauty adorns the mountains,
Mist blanketing the cliffs,
A sacred cliff standing aloft,
Where fragrance and perfume afloat.

Chorus:—’Tis an alii, a wohi,
Held dear by the Nihoa Society,
Like a bubbling spring,
Coming forth from the heart.

Let us be here together,
Stringing lei of royal blossoms,
Entwined with aloha,
The intimates of the sea of Nihoa.

Nihoa Society.]

[The Hui Nihoa, or Nihoa Society, consisted of members from the group which included the then Princess Liliuokalani who went to Nihoa in 1886.]
