I have a song stuck in my head and I can not find the music for it anywhere on the internet. I heard it while in Hawaii and I have a recording of it by George Kahumoku Jr. that I listen to often. Any help is appreciated. it is a popular church song in Hawaii I believe.

" Ua Mau "

If you have the chourds for Ukulele I would be most grateful if you could e-mail them to me or tell me where i might locate them.

George is doing it in C open tuning(I'm guessing). I can transcribe it for an ukulele, guitar, piano or instrument of your choice. Send me a check fo $50 and I will deliver the transcription within the week. For a choral arrangement, allow two weeks. Email me for more info.

Stay Tuned...

Ua Mau

verse:
(C)Ua mau, (F) mai e ka pono.(C)
(G7) Mai ka Makua lani (C) mai
Ke hui (F) nei mäkou (C)
I (G7) kona loko maika`i. (C)
chorus:
(C) Hosana (F)`ia ke Akua (C)
(G7)Ma nä lani (F) ki`eki`e (C)
Ka waiho (F) `ana mai (C)
(G7) I kö käkou ola (C)

I think there is a slight difference between verse and chorus, but this should be close.
Check out a recording for the exact melody. I have heard Na Leo Pilimehana sing it and saw it on one of Iz' videos.

Luckily, huapala.org has included all of the verses to this himeni -- as well as the story behind it (at bottom of page):

As for the various recordings of the himeni, most Hawaiians ask for the one done by Moe Keale (on his "South Sea Island Magic" CD) -- or the newest one, by (Walter) Keale (on his "Kahikina" CD).

I do believe George plays in the key of C using a Taro Patch "F".

Here you go. This is from huapala, with the chords inserted by me. I don't know what key you want to play/sing it in. If I do it in a key of my choice, can you transpose if you need to? Please let me know. Here it is in the key of C.

Translation:
Perpetual is the righteousness
That comes from the Father above
Let us gather together
In His goodness and grace

Chorus:
Praised be God
In the high heavens
His laying down
For our lives

We gather together
Parents and children
As one in mind
And one in heart

Here we all are
Joyfully praising
In the name of the Lord
Jehovah of the Sabbath

Arise all ye saints
Stand fast for righteousness
Forever faithful
In the goodness of the Spirit

This renowned union
In the works of righteousness
The Sabbath day throng
Of the twilight

Here we all are
Having gathered together
To witness the works
And celebrate the Jubilee

Ye wearied laborers
Comfort and salvation to your minds
Through the goodness of the Spirit
That we may live

One in purpose
He, the Lord, directs
The work that is inspired
For the good of us all

It is He that leads
Each and everyone of us
With enlightend knowledge
Of continual victory

We are overjoyed
This blessed day
At Sunday worship
Until the twilight


Source: Translated by Kä`eo Kawa`a - Moses W. Kaaneikawahaale Keale, more commonly known as Keale Ta Kaula (Keale, the prophet) was one of Ni`ihau's most famous and powerful christian leaders. Born in Kalalau, Kaua`i, about 1828, he was an excellent hunter, not brought up in the new christian religion. One day, as he was hunting, he followed a white goat up a cliff and became stranded on a ledge. A falling rock hit him, causing him to lose his balance and tumble into the river called Makani Kahoa. As he plummeted down the cliff, he called out, "If there really is a God, he will save me and I shall spend the rest of my life serving him". His fall was broken by a pandanus tree and he was pulled from the river by his dog. Another version varies a little, but the facts, the fall and rescue by his dog are the same in this story of his conversion. Keale started his first church in Waimea, Kaua`i and was led to Ni`ihau where he was greatly loved and respected as a kahu and for his gift of prophecy. Many songs were written in his honor and he in turn wrote many prayers and hymns for his church that are still used today.

I think I lined up everything the best I could. Please e-mail me if you have any questions. I'm glad to be of help to anyone who needs help with anything. Mahalo nui loa.

He kehau ho'oma'ema'e ke aloha.

Ah shucks! The computer won't let me line it up right. It only puts one space between each chord name. Andy, is there anything you can do about this? Mahalo.

Thanks so much and no problem I have been busy playing it along with Georgeall weekend. I love the fact that not only do I now have all of the verses but a much deeper understanding of the song. I had heard the story once when we sang it in Waimea but had not remembered all of it. I had found the huapala.org web site it is one of my favorite sources for words and info on songs my problem is I am still not real good on finding correct chords by just listening to recordings I wish I could play by ear but I am still working on it. Luckly I do know how to transpose so once I find the song I can transpose it into a key that I can sing it in . Now if my Hawaiian will just improve to the point that I am confident enough to sing this at our church I think otherwould really enjoy it as well. Ah well it is a GOAL.
MAHALO everyone for your help !

Bill Keale does a beautiful version of this song on his "With Aloha" CD. He Does it in the key of F...C chord position capoed at the 5th fret.

What? You mean high "E" is the TOP string. No way dude! That changes everything!

Very beautifully done, Jesse. What kind of microphone is that we see in your videos? It looks way cool, like back from the fifties.

I am using one of the cheap large diaphragm condensers from MXL. Sound is mediocre, but it's very sensitive so I don't have to "eat" the mic when making videos. The two mics I use were a set for about $100.
