The prayer

I have the Hawaiian and English version of The Prayer by Hookena. I also know the dance motions to this song. My beloved Kumu Kamalei Sataraka taught me this beautiful dance before she passed away a year ago. I would be happy to share it with you in her memory.

The prayer

Over years having lived in Hawaii, I plan to move back to the mainland. I love to choreograph Hawaiian songs.
If you provide me the Hawaiian & English, I'd like to share my wisdom with you. I have looked for my final hula for my friends.
Mahalo.

LYRICS TO THE PRAYER

“THE PRAYER” – Ho’okena with Maila Gibson

I pray you’ll be our eyes
And watch us where we go
And help us to be wise
In times when we don’t know
Let this be our prayer
As we go our way
Lead us to a place
Guide us with your grace
To a place where we’ll be safe

I lama no makou, I pray we’ll find your light
E pa’a poli ai, and hold it in our hearts
Ke lipo mai ka po, when starts go out each night
I ‘ike ‘ia ‘oe, that you may be seen
I pule na makou, let this be our prayer
Ke malu mai ka la, when shadows fill our day
Ala ka’i mai (offer us guidance)
E paulele e (that we may have faith)
I ka palekana mau (in safety that is everlasting)

Kahi pau o ka ‘eha a kaumaha
(A place where pain and sorrow are no more)
A lan ka mana’o o kanaka
(And hope is restored to the heart of man)
‘Upu mau a’e (I) ka Makua Lani
(We shall always remember the heavenly Father)
A huli mau ia ‘oe
(And always turn to You)
I ka lani la
(Reaching to heaven above)

(Don’t have Hawaiian words for this part)
We ask that life be kind, and watch us from above
We hope each soul will find, another soul to love
Let this be our prayer, just like every child
Needs to find a place, guide us with your grace
Give us faith so we’ll be safe
I ka malu ou
E paulele ai
I ka palekana mau.

Lyrics For "The Prayer"

I purchased Ho'okena Treasure II: Lei Pulamahia CD and the last part of the song, the Hawaiian lyrics for The Prayer are sung. Your e-mail is posted back in 2009 so you may already have it. I'm not good at hearing and translating so if you know someone who has done it already, I would like the translation. On the Mountain Apple Co. website, the CD is $12.98 and is still available. Thank you.

The Prayer Hookena

the missing lyrics to The Prayer Ho'okena
I pray you'll be our eyes, and watch us where we go
And help us to be wise, in times when we don't know
Let this be our prayer, as we go our way
Lead us to a place, guide us with your grace
To a place where we'll be safe

I lama no makou, I pray we'll find your light
E pa'a poli ai, and hold it in our hearts
Ke lipo mai ka po, when stars go out each night
I 'ike 'ia 'oe (that you may be seen)
I pule na makou, let this be our prayer
Ke malu mai ka la, when shadows fill our day
Ala ka'i mai (Offer us guidance)
E paulele e (that we may have faith)
I ka palekana ma-u (in safety everlasting)

Kahi pau o ka 'eha a kaumaha (A place where pain and sorrow are no more)
A lana ka mana'o o kanaka (and hope is restored to the heart of man)
'Upu mau a'e (We shall always remember)
[i] Ka Makua lani (the Heavenly Father)
Huli mau ia 'oe (and always turn to you)
I ka lani la (reaching to heaven above)
I holu iho no, we ask that life be kind
O ho’o malu mai, and watch us from above
A pili pu'u wai, we hope each soul will find
Me ke aloha e, another soul to love

Let this be our prayer, let this be our prayer
Just like every child, just like every child
Needs to find a place, guide us with your grace
Give us faith so we'll be safe
I ka malu ou (In your shadow)
E paulele ai (there we have faith)
I ka palekana mau (in safety everlasting)
