E ko mākou Makua i loko o ka Lani
e hoʻāno ʻia kou inoa;

E hāʻawi mai iā mākou i kēia lā i ʻai na mākou no nēia lā
e kala mai hoʻi iā mākou i kā mākou lawehala ʻana,

No ka mea, nou ke aupuni, a me ka mana a me ka hoʻonani ʻia a mau loa aku.
The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your Name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done, on earth
as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins,
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Save us from the time of trial,
and deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power, and
the glory are yours, now and for ever.
The Aliʻi were the traditional nobility of the Hawaiian islands. They were part of a hereditary line of rulers, the Noho Aliʻi.
King Kamehameha IV and Queen Emma were responsible for bringing the Anglican Church to Hawaiʻi. The first services of the church were held on October 12, 1862, amidst a time of mourning for the young Prince of Hawaiʻi, the only son of the King and Queen who died shortly before the arrival of the Bishop. The arrival of the Bishop had been long anticipated and prepared for by the King, who had translated much of the Book of Common Prayer into the Hawaiian language and had written a Preface explaining this new Anglican Christianity to his people.
