146. Nu Oli (Glad Tidings)

1 Glad tidings! glad tidings! O wonderful love!
A message has come from the angels above;
Good news of great joy comes to young and to old,
For Jesus brings mercy more precious than gold.

Refrain:
Glad tidings, glad tidings!
O wonderful, wonderful, wonderful love!
Glad tidings, glad tidings!
We hail the glad tidings of wonderful love.

1 Nu oli! nu oli! he nu kamaha'o! he nu kamaha'o!
He nu no ke ola mai luna mai no,
No kanaka mui, no kamali'i nei,
A oi ka nani i ke gula a'ia'i.

Refrain:
Nu oli! nu oli! nu kamaho'o!
Kamaha'o! kamaha'o! Nu oli! nu oli!
He nu no ke ola, e hau'oli e!

2 Nuoli! nuoli! ua pili ia nu
Ika po'e ilihune, ka poe lu'ulu'u,
Ne'e mai a paulele, hahai ia Iesu,
A pau no ka hune, a maha oukou. [Refrain]

3 Nuoli! nuoli! hauoli oukou,
Ka po'e akahai, a ha'aha'a ka naau;
Na Iesu e kala a ho'ohanau hou,
A ka'i nai nei a'e i ka nani mao. [Refrain]
