E Nai Wale No Oukou… 1897.

E naʻi wale nō ʻoukou!

nupepa

NAI WALE NO OUKOU AO’E PAU

1. E Hawaii Nui kuauli,
E na Honoapiilani,
Oahu o Kakuhihewa,
Kauai o Manokalani.

Cho. E nai wale no oukou,
I kuu pono ao’e pau,
I ka pono kumu o Hawaii,
E mau e ka Ea o ka aina i ka pono.

2. He leo aloha i pae mai,
Mai na kukulu mai o Kahiki,
E i mai ana ia oe e Hawaii,
E malama i ka maluhia.

3. I hookahi kahi ka manao,
I hookahi kahi ke aloha,
I hookahi kahi puuwai,
E malama i ka maluhia.

Composed by
Samuel K. Kamakaia.

[Another well-known mele, with a few noticeable differences from what is sung today. The repeated line “E malama i ka maluhia.” would be “Keep the peace.”]

(Aloha Aina, 8/21/1897, p. 7)
