2. 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.
2. ʻO ka haliʻa aloha i hiki mai
Ke hone aʻe nei i
ʻO ʻoe nō kaʻu ipo aloha
A loko e hana nei
3. Maopopo kuʻu ʻike i ka nani
Nā pua rose o Maunawili
I laila hiaʻia nā manu
Mikiʻala i ka nani o ka lipo
2. 'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
and grace my fears relieved;
how precious did that grace appear,
the hour I first believed!
3. Through many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
'twas grace has brought me safe thus far,
and grace will lead me home.
2. And surely ye'll be your pint-stowp and surely I'll be mine.
And we'll tak a cup o'kindness yet for auld lang syne.
3. We twa hae rin aboot the braes, and pu'd the gowans fine.
But we've wander'd mony a weary fit, sin auld lang syne.
4. We twa hae paidl'd i'the burn, frae morning sun till dine.
But seas between us braid hae roar'd, sin' auld lang syne.
5. And there's a hand, my trusty fiere and gie's a hand o'thine,
and we'll tak a right gude willie-waught for auld lang syne.
