I Cried Aloud To God… Hawai’i used to be an independent Pacific kingdom until it was invaded and
annexed by the USA at the end of the 19th century. The queen, Lili’Uokalami, was imprisoned and wrote a lament still sung today. This is the original tune set to words from Psalm 77 which is complementary in sentiment.
Melody: Queen Lili’uokalani, Hawai’i, 1895.
Tune: O KOU ALOHA NO
Paraphrase of Psalm 77 & Arrangement: John L. Bell.
