"hea i ka haku" ~ shout to the lord

Aloha ~

On April 28, I asked for prayers for my friend + hula sister Kris' mom, who was in the ICU. Auntie Kuʻulei has since passed away; her service will be held tonight. Auntie Kuʻulei had so much aloha for Kelsey, her granddaughter + Kris' tonight, we will all dance "Hea i ka Haku," as sung so beautifully by Holunape, in honor of Auntie Kuʻulei. This has always been a favorite of mine + I will picture her sweet, joyful smile the whole time...

Hea i ka Haku

E mele au i ka ho‘ola e
He nani no
He nani no
E Iesu, ku‘u ho‘ola
‘A‘ohe lua Ou
I na la a pau
E ho‘omaika‘i
I kou aloha kamaha‘o.
Ku‘u kokua, ku‘u malu
Ku‘u mana e
Ku‘u hanu, ku‘u ola
E hi‘ilani mau a mau

Hea i ka Haku
E himeni ke ao
He mana ke Ali‘i, e ho‘ihi e
Uluhia ‘o luna me ko lalo e
I ka lohe i kou inoa
Himeni hau‘oli i ka hana ho‘i au
He aloha mau ko‘u
Ku mau a mau
Kukahi ka nani ke paulele au ia ‘oe


Then sings my soul, My saviour God, to thee
How great thou art
How great thou art
My Jesus, my Savior Lord, there is none like you
All of my days I want to praise
The wonders of your mighty love
My comfort, my Shelter
Tower of refuge and strength
Let every breath, all that I am
Never cease to worship you

Shout to the Lord
All the earth, let us sing
Power and majesty, praise to the King
Mountains bow down and the seas will roar
At the sound of your name
I sing for joy
At the work of your hands
Forever I'll love you
Forever I'll stand
Nothing compares to the promise I have in You
