MALAMA I KA `AINA”

Lyrics by Howard Shapiro

Music by Gregg Perry

Sailing on the horizon to my new home

Across the Pacific I’m never alone


The guiding spirits leading the way


Giving thanks upon this sacred ground I pray
Malama i ka `aina, love the land

Malama i ka `aina, understand



My people are so strong they work all day

in the hot Hawaiian sun

Sharing their bounty with `ohana and everyone

A new culture has emerged been built from the past

Lessons from our kupuna make our history last
Malama i ka `aina, love the land

Malama i ka `aina, understand



A culture 2,000 years old

And through our songs and chants you know our history’s told


Great ali`i with the knowledge the power and pride

Through the gods they would rule and they would guide



Malama i ka `aina, love the land


Malama i ka `aina, understand

Now the story’s been told


Of our people so strong and bold

Living with the land and sea


So proud of our ancestry
Malama i ka `aina, love the land

Malama i ka `aina, understand

Malama i ka `aina, love the land

Malama i ka `aina, understand
