A himeni for Queen Liliuokalani composed by Mrs. E. K. Naipo, 1893.

LILIUOKALANI.

E ola o Liliuonalani,
E paa i ka noho o ka lanakila,
E mau Kou ihikapu Lani,
Ma na kaiaulu o Hawaii.

Hui:
E o mai oe e Liliulani,
Ka wahine puuwai hao kila,
Silaia i paa ko Aupuni,
Me ka pono kuokoa o ka Lahui.

2
E mau Kou hilinaiia,
E Ou mau makaainana,
Me ka puuwai aloha aina,
Aina kaulana i ka hanohano.

3
E hoi e Liliu i Ko kapu,
I ka Noho Kalaunu i Halealii,
He Alii i poniia e na Lani,
I Moiwahine no Hawaii.

[The song above was composed by Mrs. E. K. Naipo of Honopueo, North Kohala, Hawaii, on the 18th past, for the benefit of the Manaolanakila Glee Club, and we happily publish it. Editor.]

[LILIUOKALANI.

Long live Liliuonalani,
Secure on your throne of victory,
May your Heavenly majestic kapu endure
Amongst the communities of Hawaii.

Chorus:
Respond, O Liliulani,
Steel-hearted woman,
Your Nation is fixed,
With independence for the People.

2
May You continue to be relied upon,
By Your makaainana,
With patriotic hearts,
Of this land renowned for its honor.

3
Return, O Liliu, to Your kapu,
To the Throne in the Palace,
You are an Alii anointed by the Heavens,
As Queen of Hawaii.]
