An Hawaiian chant in modern form; words by Kawaikapuokalani Hewett; music by Blaine Kamalani Kia - The music of this song is so flowing and uplifting, that people are drawn to it without knowing what it means. Yet its message is a serious one and very important with where we find ourselves at this time on the planet. It is asking us as human beings to remember that we are also children of God. It is asking us to pay attention - to remember our kuleana (responsibility) as children of God. Are we honoring and embracing the knowledge from our ancestors and this blessed opportunity we have from the Great Mother giving us life? Are we being responsible to our elders, to each other, to ourselves? Are we taking care of the land ('aina)? How are we living our life? An important question with what we see going on around us in the world right now. 

LYRICS

‘Auhea wale ‘oe, kamali’i o ka Pō 
Eia ho’i au, kamali’i o ke ao 
Wākea ka lani, Papa ka honua 
No ka luna kō luna, no ka lalo kō lalo 

'Auhea wale 'oe, kamali'i o ka Pō 
Eia ho'i au, kamali'i o ke ao 
Kō ke akua, ka'i amio 
Kō lihau 'ula ka'i kupua 

'Auhea wale 'oe, kamali'i o ka Pō 
Eia ho'i au, kamali'i o ke au 
Ho'ohōkūkalani ka wahine 
Hāloa a ke kalo, Hāloa ke kanaka 

'Auhea wale 'oe, kamali'i o ka Pō 
Eia ho'i au, kamali'i o ke ao 
Aia iā 'oe ke pauku i waena 
Aia i hea ke po'o 
Aia i hea ka hi'u 

'Auhea wale 'oe 
'Auhea wale 'oe 
Kamali'i o ka Pō 

Listen, child of the night, here I am child of the light. 
The sky above is Wakea, Earth below is Papa. 
The heavens above, the Earth below. 
All in its rightful place, Ke Kuliana keia. 

The kahuna received their enlightenment, 
Their mana from our ancient gods. 
They were the chosen ones. 
They spoke the words of the ancient gods, 
they taught our laws and maintained our traditions, 
all in its rightful place. 

Ho'ohōkūkalani, the royal mother 
Gave birth to Hāloa, the kalo, then to Hāloa, the man. 
The elder gave life to the junior lineage 
All in its rightful place. 

Listen, child of the night, here I am child of the light 
You have there with you the middle section of the fish. 
But where is the head? And where is the tail? 
Where did you come from? Where will you go? 
Listen! Is all in its rightful place? 

Listen! 
Listen! 
Child of the Night 

Kamali'i O Ka Po
