[AWED BY THE GLORY

1 O Liliu,
Heavenly one of ours;
The Wohi
Chief of the Lahui
The great Alii,
Greatly revered;
Yours are the kapu,
We are in awe.

Cho: Independent Hawaii!
Hawaii, eternally glorious,
Endure;
Wave for all times
Your beautiful Flag,
On the shores
Of the Pacific.

2 O Loloku,
Chief of the Lahui;
Here we are
Your makaainana,
Pained with aloha
For the land;
For the Monarch of Hawaii,
And the People.

Cho: Independent Hawaii! &c.

3 O Father,
Power of the Heavens;
Give consideration,
To us;
For this is a plea and an appeal,
For the lasting Sovereignty,
Of the land,
Let Hawaii live,
For all times.

Cho: Independent Hawaii! &c.
