He Mele No Kaminaka

by Kaipo Leopoldino

Aia i ke kula o Kalaepohaku nei

Ka home o na pua hinahina e

Welina ke aloha ia kakou

E kipa mai!

Aloha e, Aloha e, Aloha e

The school on Kalaepohaku

The home of the Silversword blossoms

You are all welcomed with love

Come in

Welcome, welcome, welcome

Oli Mahalo

ʻUhola ʻia ka makaloa lā

Puʻai i ke aloha lā

Kū kaʻi ʻia ka hā loa lā

Pāwehi mai nā lehua

Mai ka hoʻokuʻi a ka hālāwai lā

Mahalo e Nā Akua

Mahalo e nā kūpuna lā, ʻeā

Mahalo me ke aloha lā

Mahalo me ke aloha lā

The makaloa mat has been unfurled

In love, (food is/was shared) we share

The great breath has been exchanged

Honored and adorned is the Lehua

From zenith to horizon

Gratitude and thanks to our Akua

Gratitude and thanks to our beloved ancestors

Gratitude, admiration, thanks, and love

To all who are present, both seen and unseen

Hoʻonani I Ka Makua Mau (Doxology) 

by Rev. Hiram Bingham & Haunani Bernadino, Music by Louis Bourgeois

Hoʻonani ka Makua mau,

Ke Keiki me ka ʻUhane nō,

Ke Akua mau hoʻomaikaʻi pū,

Ko kēia ao, ko kēlā ao.

 

Kūnou haʻahaʻa ko ka honua

Nō uluuli o ke kai

Na ʻano lani kau hōkū

Nā nani o ka ʻōnaeao

ʻĀmene

Praise God from whom all blessing flow,

Praise Him all creatures here below,

Praise Him above ye heavenly host,

Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

 

All the earth bows in tribute,

As do the riches of the sea,

The celestials among the stars

And the splendors of the universe.

Amen
