496. Ekolu Mea Nui (Three Greatest Things)

1 Ekolu me nui maka honua,
O kamana'oi'o, kamana'olana,
a me kealoha. Kealoha kai oi a'e,
Pomaika'i na mea apau,
pomaika'i na mea apau.

2 E na makua, na keiki,
Na mamo a luda me Epelaima.
E pa'a kamana'o i ka pono i oi ae.
Pomaika'i na mea apau,
pomaika'i na mea apau.

(This translation is not intended to be sung:)
1 Three important things in the world,
faith, hope, and aloha, aloha is the best,
and everything is blessed,
and everything is blessed.

2 O parents, children, descendants of Judah and Ephraim,
think always that righteousness is best,
and everything is blessed,
and everything is blessed.
