HE WEHI NO KA LAHUI.

More awesome patriotic mele by Eleanor Prendergast, 1893.

HE WEHI NO KA LAHUI.

He inoa keia no ka lahui
Na ewe hanau o ka aina
Na pua na mamo na oiwi
A ka I a ka Mahi me ka Palena
E ala e lohe i ka welina
Ka’u kanaenae no Hawaii
Lahui malama i ka maluhia
Kupaa i ka pono o ke Kalaunu
Palekaua ia o ka manaoio
A he kolopa nana e une
Na pali kapu a o Kilauea
Ua paa i ke ahi a ka Wahine
I ke aiwaiwa o ke ao nei
Nana e hooni puni ka honua
Ike ia Hawaii a he moku nui
I ke o-i ana iho paa i ka mole
Keehi kulana i Ainaike
Ike ia kaua he hoa kanaka
Hookahi puuwai o ke aloha
Kakoo i kuu one hanau
Kihapai ia no Edena
Ua piha i ka ono me ke kuhinia
Nawai e ole a e makahehi
Na manu Aiko o ka Hikina mai
I ka ike i ka nani me ka hemolele
Aina o ka meli me ka waiu
E kahe ana ia me ke aliali
Me he wai hau ala no Helemona
Kona mau kuahiwi a he kilakila
He molale i ka maka ke ike aku
Ka makani kupa hoi a he aheahe
Kona mau kapakai a he malie
Na ulu laau a he uliuli
O kona mau pua e popohe ana
A he waianuahea kona aala [A he waianuhea kona aala]
E poina ole ai ke hoomanao
Mukiki ana i ka pua lehua
Ahe nani hiehie kona hiona
He nohea me he manu Nunu ala
Ka opua ua hoi ua haaheo
O ke anuenue e pipio ana
O ka oi no ia i ka’u ike
Aole ona lua e like ai
Kaena ana au me ka haaheo
No kuu aina i hanau ai
He momi i loaa mailuna mai
A he lei kaimana no ka lahui
E ola kakou a pau loa
Ma ka inoa o ka Haku Mana Loa
Haina e ka wehi i kaulana
He mele lahui no Hawaii.
