Makaha Sons Of Ni'ihau - He Inoa No Pi'ilani lyrics

Hā'ale ke aloha no Hōnaunau
Ke nā'ū nei kamali'i i ka lā
Ka lā kau aku i Pōhaku-Nānā
E hi'i 'ia maila e Moanauli
Huli aku nānā i ka lei maile
Lana i ke ala loa a ka wāwae 'ehu

'Ehuehu ke alo i 'Akahi-Papa
E hihi mai ana e ka lihilihi
Hō'ihi ka inoa 'o Pi'ilani
'Ikea nō ka hiwa mai lalo Kona
I am filled with love for Hōnaunau
Where children chant nā'ū to the sun
To the sun that rests above Pōhaku-Nānā-Lā
To the sun held in Moanauli's embrace
Look back, turn to the lei maile
Afloat on the long path of faded footsteps
At 'Akahi-Papa the face is damp with sea spray
And the eyelashes are salt-encrusted.
We hold in reverence the name Pi'ilani
Known is the precious one from lalo Kona.
