  1. 1. FallCommencement Exercises December 18, 2010
  2. 2. Ua Ao Hawai‘i Words by Larry Kimura Chant melody by Kalena SilvaKau e ka wena o ke ao i ka lani The announcement of dawn appears as a glowing streak upon the heavens,He wekeweke i ka pö pilipuka It is a narrow opening in the darkness heralding the day,He ‘elele o ka poniponi hikina It is a messenger of purple glimmer from the east.Kau ke kähe‘a wana‘ao i ka ‘äla‘apapa Streaks of red stain long cloud formations,La‘i ana i luna o ke kükulu o ka lani lä Reposing serenely upon the pillars holding up the heavens;‘O ka‘u ia e huli alo nei i ka ulu ë I turn to gaze upon this, focusing on growth and the rising of a new day,‘Ae, ua ao ë. Yes, day has arrived.Hö mai lä kö mälamalama Bestow upon us your radiant lightI ka honua nei i ka mauli ola Here upon the earth, filled with the spirit of life.Ua ao Hawai‘i ke ‘ölino nei Hawai‘i is in the brightness of day, it shines, brilliantMai ka pi‘ina a ka welona a ka lä From its boundaries from the east to the west.Kähiko ‘ia i ka ‘ike manomano It wears as its finery a myriad of knowledge,Ka ‘ike köli‘u mai o kikilo mai Of deep insight from the depths of antiquity.‘O ka‘u nö ia ‘o ka pülama My sole duty is to embrace and to cherish,A pa‘a ma ka ipu o ka ‘ike ë. So it may be firm in the repositories of enlightenment.‘Ae, ua ao ë. Yes, day has arrived.He mele no Hawai‘i ua ao. This is a poem for Hawai‘i which has seen the light of day.

The Star-Spangled Banner Poem by Francis Scott Key Music by John Stafford Smith Oh, say, can you see by the dawn’s early light What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming? Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight, O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming? And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air, Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there. Oh, say, does that Star‐Spangled Banner yet wave O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
