School Songs

 

Sons of Hawai`i (Alma Mater)
by William B. Olson and Theodore Richards
Listen to Nā Ōpio Singers

Be strong and ally ye, oh sons of Hawai‘i
And nobly stand together hand in hand.
All dangers defy ye,
Oh sons of Hawai‘i,
And bravely serve your own, your fatherland.

CHORUS:

Ring, ring, Kalihi, ring
Swell the echo of our song.
Ray, ray, ray, ray, ray, rah; ray, ray Kamehameha
Let hills and valleys loud our song prolong.

Be firm and deny ye, oh sons of Hawai`i.
Allurements that your race will overwhelm.
Be true and rely ye,
Oh sons of Hawai‘i,
On God, the prop and pillar of your realm.

CHORUS: (as before)

 

I mua Kamehameha
by Charles E. King
Listen to Nā Ōpio Singers

I mua, Kamehameha ē Forward Kamehameha
A lanakila ‘oe Until you have gained the victory
Paio, paio like mau Go forward, strive, strive in unity
I ola kou inoa. That your name may live.
Ka wā nei hō‘ike a‘e ‘oe Go forward
‘A ‘ohe lua ou. This is the time for you to reveal
E lawe lilo ka ha‘aheo That there is none to compare with you
No Kamehameha ē. Take the victory with pride for Kamehameha

 

Hoonani i Ka Makua Mau (Doxology)
by Thomas Ken
Listen to Nā Ōpio Singers

Based on scripture from Ephesians 1:3, the doxology is a way of praising God for our blessings. The doxology is typically sung for grace before meals at Kamehameha.

Ho‘onani i ka Makua mau,
Ke Keiki me ka ‘Uhane Nō,
Ke Akua mau ho‘omaika‘i pū
Ko kēiā ao, ko kēlā ao.
‘Amene.

Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
Amen.

Happy youth of Hawaii
Rejoice! Rejoice!
Gentle breezes blow
Love always for Hawaii

Your loving people, O Hawaii
The Holy light from above
O Hawaii aloha

God protects you
Your beloved ridges
Your ever glistening streams
Your beautiful gardens
