Oli Aloha - Welcoming Chant

Onaona i ka hala me ka lehua
He hale lehua no ia na ka noe

O ka`u no ia e `ano`i nei
E lia`a nei ho`i o ka hiki mai

A hiki mai no `oe
Hiki pu no me ke aloha

Aloha e, aloha e

Fragrant with the breath of hala and lehua
This is the sight I long to see

Of this, my present desire
Your coming fills me with eagerness

Now that you have come
Loves comes with you

Greetings, greettings
