Haleakala Ana 'Ole

from by Pamela Polland

about

Dr. George H. LeBouvier, MD, brilliant researcher,linguist, botanist and musician, came to Maui to retire in 1977. He quickly learned the Hawaiian language and grew to love every nuance of HaleakalÅ. George passed away in 1996 and with him his dream of having his music benefit the mountain. This song was recently rediscovered and his dream brought to fruition by all who participated in the making of this CD.

lyrics

Celebrated art thou,
Kingly crown of Maui,
Adorned by the sun
Of the evening calm.

Thou art indeed the place of renown
Wherein was brought to pass
That marvelous undertaking,
Young Maui’s heroic deed.

Sacred, too, art thou to Pele,
To Pele and Lilinoe;
Nourishing the native birds
And the plants without compare.

O thou, o Haleakala,
Peerless in truth, thou art;
Noble mountain that art loved
By all of us.

O Haleakala, yea!...
Peerless, in truth, thou art;
Noble mountain that art loved
By all of us.
Let there be told the story
Of Haleakala – (House Of The Sun)
Adorned by the sun,
By the sun of the evening calm.

Let the story again be told
Of Haleakala in the stillness:
Heavenly mountain without equal
Which is cherished with pride…
Royal and matchless mountain
That is forever loved.
