Waipi'o Paka'alana

 
Aloha Waipi'o Paka'alana
'Aina ua nani i ka wailele
 
Ke wai kau mai la i ka pali
Hulali i ke kau mai a ka laa
 
Hanohano Liiloa noho mai i luna
Me naa kini lehu o ka 'aaina
 
Ua laa'i ka nohona me Ha'iwahine
I ka poli aloha o Hainakolo
 
Ha'ina ka inoa a e lohe 'ia
No Liiloa no la he inoa

Temple of Waipi'o

Versions: #1#2
'O beloved Paka'alana Waipi'o1
A beautiful land near the waterfall.
 
Its waters seen afar on the cliffs
Glistening to streaks of sunlight.
 
The noble Liloa2 resides high above
Shadowing the people of the land down below.
 
A delight it is to meet with Ha'iwahine3
Deep within the cherished heart of Hainakolo.4
 
Tell the name and let it be heard
For surely it speaks of Liloa!2
 
"Work hard in silence, let your success be your noise!"
