Hawaii State Song
Hawaii Pono'i

The Hawaii State Song ...  Hawaii Pono'i ...   is  the National Anthem of the sovereign Monarchy of Hawaii.  It is about the unification of the Islands by King Kamehameha.

It is very well known in the Islands. Children learn it in school, and sing it at their school assemblies. It is sometimes heard at football games, and at other official events. Quite often, when My Country ‘Tis of Thee is sung, it is followed by Hawaii Pono'i.

Here is a very nice video of the  Hawaii State Song  on YouTube. 

Hawaii Pono'i Lyrics

Hawaii pono'i
Nana i kou, moi
Kalani Ali'i,
ke Ali'i. 

Makua lani e
Kamehameha e
Na kaua e
pale
Me ka i he.


(Translation)
Hawaii's own true sons,
Be loyal to your chief
Your country's liege and lord,
The King Father above us all,
Kamehameha, Who guarded in the war with his spear.
