A Londonderry Air
Yea, would to God I were among the roses
that lean to kiss you as you float between
while on the lowest branch a bud uncloses
a bud uncloses, to touch you, queen.
Nay, since you will not love, would I were growing
a happy daisy, in the garden path
that so your silver foot might press me going
might press me going even unto death.
ʻO ka haliʻa aloha i hiki mai
Ke hone aʻe nei i
ʻO ʻoe nō kaʻu ipo aloha
A loko e hana nei
Maopopo kuʻu ʻike i ka nani
Nā pua rose o Maunawili
I laila hiaʻia nā manu
Mikiʻala i ka nani o ka lipo
'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
and grace my fears relieved;
how precious did that grace appear,
the hour I first believed!
Through many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
'twas grace has brought me safe thus far,
and grace will lead me home.
Auld Lang Syne
