Song for Ka Na’i Aupuni, Kamehameha Paiea, 1909.

Mele o Ka Na’i Aupuni.

E Hawaii nui Kuauli
E na Hono-a-Piilani
Oahu o Kakuhihewa
Kauai o Mano Kalanipo.

Hui:  E Na’i wale no oukou
I kuu pono aole pau
I ka pono kumu o Hawaii
E mau e ka Ea o ka aina i ka pono.

I hookahi kahi ka manao
I hookahi kahi puuwai
I hookahi kahi ke aloha
E mau a ka Ea o ka aina i ka pono

[This was printed for Kamehameha Day 105 years ago! See also an earlier publication of a variant of this mele from Aloha Aina, 8/21/1897.]

Mele o Ka Na'i Aupuni.

Kuokoa Home Rula, Buke VII, Helu 24, Aoao 1. Iune 11, 1909.

 

E Nai Wale No Oukou… 1897.

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.”]
