For the Lāhui

Written by Kumu Hinaleimoana Wong & Josh Tatofi

E welo mau loa kuʻu hae aloha

I ka nuʻu o ka lewa lani lā

A e maluhia no na kau a kau

Eo Hawaiʻi kuʻu ‘āina aloha

E kuʻu lāhui

E wiwoʻole

E kū kānaka

E ‘onipaʻa mau

Ua mau ke ea o ka ‘āina i ka pono

Ua mau ke ea o ka ‘āina i ka pono



My beloved flag waves ever more

in the last year’s heights of the sky.

Always and forever more

in peace and tranquility,

Hail your name,

oh Hawaiʻi my beloved


To you my nation be bold and fearless,

Stand as kānaka,

And be steadfast in your place.

For the freedom of our land remains always in the truth of our people.
