No Liliha
Composed by Lei‘ohu Ryder
April 28, 1999

Beginning Oli:
He mauna kou leo Liliha
Ta wahipana o ‘Iao
He mauna kihei pili o ka aina
Ta wahipana o ‘Iao

He ua O ‘Iao
Ho’oheno ana mai
Ka pilipili waiha
E onaona i ka la

HUI
Nou wale iho no
Ke kamalani oi
Ka palala palaha
Na moku o waila

I’ini i ka po
Pulama i na ha
Ka pali kapu wai
Ke uli ana mai

He inoa no Liliha
Wahine kapu O waila
He mele u’i no
Kealoha i ka la

(He inoa no Lilia)
Sacred rain, of ‘Iao
Fragrant to me
A close prayer
Alluring this day

Filled with remembrance
Child of Heaven’s best
A sacred breathe
For the island of life

Within the night
A gift of life
The mountain’s sacred water
Glistens toward me

This name Liliha
Sacred to the water
A beautiful mele for you
Everlasting love this day
