Christmas in Hawaii isn't complete without the fun and festive holiday Hawaiian music. It's the traditional with a definite island twist. Filled with lyrics in both Hawaiian and English, these songs are a joy for anyone wishing to remember and reminisce about the holidays in Hawai'i Nei. Mele Kalikimaka!

Away in a Manger (He Kapu Hanai)
Author Unknown     Composed by William J. Kirkpatrick

He kapu hanai oia ka moe
No ke kamaiki e hia moe ai
Nana mai lana hoku mailuna mai
Ia Iesu ka Haku o moe lai ana.

 

Away in a manger no crib for a bed
the little Lord Jesus laid down his sweet head
The stars in the bright sky looked down where he lay
the little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay.

The cattle are lowing the baby awakes
but little Lord Jesus no crying he makes.
I love you Lord Jesus; look down from the sky
and stay by my side until morning is nigh.
