LYRICS
Ke Alaula by The Makaha Sons

E Kumuola, e ku'u tutu,
Poha mai ka 'onohi 'ula,
Wehi 'ia ke alaula,
Mai ka mole, ke kikowaena,
Mai ka mole, ke kikowaena,

Ha'alulu ke kumu honua,
Haku 'iku'i i ka' 'aina nei,
Wehe 'ia ke alaula,
Hoaka
'O Kamawaipolani
'O Kamawaipolani

Hane'ene'e hele i kai.
'Oni me ka muliwai 'ola,
Wehi 'ia ke alaula,
Uhi pono i ke ea,
Uhi pono i ke ea,

Puana ke ha'ina,
Ho'okukaulani i hei kapu,
Wehe 'ia ke alaula,
No nahanauna nei.
No nahanauna nei.
No nahanauna nei.

ENGLISH TRANSLATION
The Dawning

Oh, Tree of Life, My tutu,
Burst with rays of fire,
Opened a flaming pathway
From the source, the center
From the source, the center

The foundation trembled,
Echoed throughout the land
Opened a stream of life
Appeared Kamawaipolani
Appeared Kamawaipolani

Moving toward the sea,
Onward like a living river
Opened a seaward path

Enveloped in life’s' breath
Enveloped in life’s' breath

The story is told,
Restore this sacred domain
Opened the path of life
For the generations of this land
For the generations of this land
For the generations of this land
