Hawaiian Wedding Prayer

E ka Haku, e kikua mai ia maua e ho'omana'o i ka manawa a maua i launa mua ai,
(Lord, help us to remember the time we first met)

a me ke aloha nui i ulu ai ma waena o maua.
(and the strong love that grew between us)

E kokua mai ia maua e ho'ohana i kela aloha i na mea ma'amau i 'ole e ka'awale.
(Help us to apply that love in practical things so nothing divides us)

Ke nonoi ha'aha'a nei maua i na hua'olelo 'olu'olu a piha me ke aloha,
(We humbly ask for kind words filled with love)

a no na pu'uwai makaukau mau e noi i ka huikala a e huikala aku.
(and for hearts always ready to ask forgiveness, as well as to forgive)

E ka Haku, ke waiho nei maua i ko maua male'ana i loko o koa lima. 'Amene
(Lord, we leave our marriage in your hands, Amen)
