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!

O Come All Ye Faithful (E Hele Mai `Oukou)
Written by John F. Wade & M.A. Portogallo   
Hawaiian lyrics by Laiana

E hele mai `oukou
Ka po`e mana`o`i`o
E hele hau`oli i Betelehema
Hele mai a `ike
I ka Mo`i hanau hou

Ho`onani kakou Ia ia
Ho`onani kakou Ia ia
Ho`onani kakou Ia ia
Kristo ka Haku

Ka lama i`o
Mai ka Lama mai
He nani Ka hua a ka pu`u pa`a
Akua maoli i hana `ole i`a

O come all ye faithful
Joyful and triumphant
O come ye, o come ye to Bethlehem
Come and behold Him
Born the King of angels

O come let us adore Him
O come let us adore Him
O come let us adore Him
Christ the Lord

God of God
Light of Light
Lo, he comes forth from the Virgin's womb
Our very God, begotten, not created
