Queen's Jubilee
by Weldon Kekauoha



Mahalo piha, Mô`î `o `Enelani
Ku`i kou kaulana nâ `âina pau
Na kai âkau nâ one hema
`Ikea kou `ihi mana nui
Eia mâkou i kou kapa kai
I kou lâ nui Iubilî
I hi`i mai i kou mâkou aloha
Maluna ou ka malu o ka Lani

Hau`oli`oli `Emepela o `Inia
I kêia makahiki Iubili
`Âkoakoa nâ ali`i `aimoku
A puni ke ao holo`oko`a
E hi`ilani e mililani
Ua hui pû`ia me Hawai`i
E uhi mai ka lani i kona nani
E ola ka mô`î ke Akua

(English Translation)

All hail to you, Great Queen of England
Fair Queen who rules over land and sea
From northern seas to southern shores
Your way is known both far and near
We come to your shores, gracious lady
On this great day of your Jubilee
To bring kind greetings from afar
May heaven bless you, long may you reign
 
All hail, all hail, Empress of India
In this your year of Jubilee
Now kings, queens and princes great
Have all assembled here today
To pay due homage and reverent love
Hawaii joins with loyal fervor
May Heaven smile on you
God bless the Queen, long may she live
