He Inoa No Pi'ilani

This song is by The Mākaha Sons and appears on the album Ho'oluana (1991) by Mākaha Sons of Ni'ihau.

Hā'ale ke aloha no Hōnaunau
Ke nā'ū nei kamali'i i ka lā
Ka lā kau aku i Pōhaku-Nānā
E hi'i 'ia maila e Moanauli
Huli aku nānā i ka lei maile
Lana i ke ala loa a ka wāwae 'ehu

'Ehuehu ke alo i 'Akahi-Papa
E hihi mai ana e ka lihilihi
Hō'ihi ka inoa 'o Pi'ilani
'Ikea nō ka hiwa mai lalo Kona
I am filled with love for Hōnaunau
Where children chant nā'ū to the sun
To the sun that rests above Pōhaku-Nānā-Lā
To the sun held in Moanauli's embrace
Look back, turn to the lei maile
Afloat on the long path of faded footsteps
At 'Akahi-Papa the face is damp with sea spray
And the eyelashes are salt-encrusted.
We hold in reverence the name Pi'ilani
Known is the precious one from lalo Kona.
