#6 "Hawaii Aloha" Rev. Lorenzo Lyons

This beloved hymn, which borrows its melody from another tune, “I Left It All With Jesus,” was composed by Lyons, a missionary fluent in the Hawaiian language, and known to his Waimea, Big Island, congregation as “Makua Laiana” (Father Lyons). Radio personality Harry B. Soria Jr. says the song was not always performed as the stirring anthem it is today. “When I was a kid ‘Hawaii Aloha’ was more of a church song. But they started doing it after events, and now, we all hold our hands high while singing it.”
