  1. Aloha Nui

by Kawaikapuokalani Hewett
A very different version of Amazing Grace - from the Hawaiian point of view. It is not a direct translation. Instead of taking the English words that we are familiar with and translating them into Hawaiian, Kawaikapu has taken the essence and deeper meaning of the song, written it in Hawaiian and then translated that into English. These are the English words that you hear on the track.

Lyrics

Ola au
I ke aloha nui
Mai luna mai ei
Ua hele auana
Ua ho’i aku nō
Ua ao ka pō

Ua ike aku au
Ka ‘ino o kēia ao nei
Na ke aloha nui
I alaka’i
Iā’u i ke akua

I live Because
of the Great Love
From above I had strayed
But now I’ve returned
From darkness
And now in light I see

Through despair I have lived
The Great Love has shown
me the light,
and the Great Love
will lead me to God

Ua ike aku au
Ka ‘ino o kēia ao nei
Na ke aloha nui
I alaka’i
Iā’u i ke akua
Iā’u i ke akua
