Sweet Lei Lehua

by King David Kalâkaua
This short and sweet love song speaks of a woman who is represented by a wreath of flowers.

Be still my pu`uwai
E naue iki nei
Hanu mâlie nahenahe
Sweet lei lehua

Kûpa`a `oe e ka`u mea nani
Kûpa`a me au kau pule ke ia
Ha`awi mai `oe kou lima i`au
Ku`u lei lehua a`ala

Ho`olale mai `oe ku`u mana`o
Moe uhane wau ia `oe a ku`u aloha
I ke awakea me ke ahiahi
Ku`u lei lehua a`ala
Be still my heart
