Himeni Ahahui O Kuhiō - Traditional

E uli e, e na pokiʻi
E oʻu mau haku o ka ʻāina
E nā pua a ʻUmi me Liloa

E ke Liʻi Kuhiō
E oʻu mau haku makaʻāinana
Eia au e lokahi e

E hili e ʻonia i paʻa

I lei hoʻohie no ka lanakila
Ke ui nei ke ui nei

Prince Jonah Kuhiō Kalanianaʻole

Turn together, o younger brothers
O my lords of the land
O descendants of ʻUmi and Liloa
Turn, turn and hearken

Your voice reaches
Reaches us
O children of Kamehameha

Here we are, O Kalanianaʻole
O Chief Kuhiō and
O my lords and commoners
Dwell in peace entwined together

Take a firm stand
Be of one heart
Wear the wreath of victory
Turn together and heed

Source: Buke Himeni Hawaiʻi - This himeni praises Jonah Kuhiō Kalanianaʻole, prince of the House of Kalākaua, and legitimate heir to the throne of Hawaiʻi, when the kingdom was overthrown in 1893. Educated at the Chief's Children's School in Honolulu, St. Matthew's College in California, and the Royal Agricultural College in England, he served in the royal Cabinet, Department of Interior, under his uncle, King David Kalākaua. After the Hawaiian monarchy was overthrown in 1893, Prince Kuhiō joined the insurrection, was imprisoned and sentenced to one year in prison. Disillusioned and stripped of his throne, the Prince left Hawaiʻi, traveled the world spending time in South Africa, and fought with the British Army in the Boer War. He returned to his home after Hawaiʻi was annexed to the United States and was elected their delegate to congress, serving ten consecutive terms, from 1903, until his death in 1922. Dedicated to his people, he was instrumental in establishing the Hawaiian Homes Commission for native Hawaiians, restored the Royal Order of Kamehameha I and established the Hawaiian Civic Club. He was called "Ke Aliʻi Makaʻāinana", Prince of the People. Translation by Mary Pukui
