My Dear Hawaiʻi - Words & music by Charles E. King

My dear Hawaiʻi
Gem of the southern sea
Land of dreams and beauty
I long to be with thee
Verdant hills and valleys
Waving palms by the sea
Gentle winds and rainbows
Thy wondrous charms for me

My dear Hawaiʻi
My paradise thou art
Thy sun kissed shores ever
Shall woo the alien heart
Thine awe inspiring fires
Lovely Waikīkī
Charm, delight and hold all
Aloha Land for me
