  • Lyrics

    Niʻihau:
    Kaulana nō ‘oe nani Ni‘ihau
    Pūpū lei nani o ka ‘āina

    He nani hiehie ‘oi kelakela
    Ka lei ‘ā‘ī o Kahelelani

    Hō mai kou aloha pili me a‘u
    Ke aloha pumehana no Ni‘ihau

    Eō e Ni‘ihau i kou inoa
    Pu‘uwai ‘olu‘olu me ke aloha

    Ha‘ina ‘ia mai ana ka puana
    Pūpū lei nani o ka ‘āina

    Kuʻu Lei Pūpū:
    Aloha a‘e ana i ku‘u lei pūpu
    E kaulana nei a i nā malihini

    He lei momi ‘oe na nā kūpuna
    A he lei ‘ā‘ī na o‘u mau mākua

    Ua hana ‘ia ‘oe me ka no‘eau
    Nā u‘i like ‘ole o Kahelelani

    He waiwai ‘oe ke loa‘a mai
    He pono kaulike no ka lehulehu

    Hō‘ike a‘e ‘oe a i kou nani
    Ka mālamalama a puni ka honua

    ‘O ka Makua Lani ko‘u alaka‘i
    Nāna e kia‘i me ke aloha

    Ha‘ina ‘ia mai ana ka puana
    Ku‘u lei pūpū poina ‘ole

    Ha‘ina hou ‘ia mai ana ka puana
    Ku‘u lei pūpū e kaulana nei
