Mahina O Hoku - by Lillian Awa

 

Auhea wale 'oe
Mahina o hoku
Ho'ike a'e 'oe
A i kou nani
 
 
Ua la'i na kai
Mehameha na pali
O 'oe a'o wau
E ho'oipoipo nei
 
 
E moani keala
O ka pua hinano
E apo mai oe
Me ku'u aloha
 
 
Ha'ina kou inoa
Mahina o hoku
Ke noho nani maila
Maunalani ki'eki'e

 

Where are you
Full moon of the night
Reveal your
Beauty
 
 
The seas are calm
The cliffs are lonely
But you and I
Are making love
 
 
How fragrant
Is the hinano blossom
That captivates you
My love
 
 
Tell of your name
Full moon of the night
There beauty sits high
Above the heavenly mountains
