2. In the travels of the good Lord Jesus, while preaching God's holy word, To all the people, he spoke in parables, bringing joy to all of those who heard. Then one day a rich young man approached him, seeking his sound advice; "Oh master, tell me, please, you know the way of love, Tell me what to do to gain true life." [refrain]
3. Minamina ē ka ʻō- | pio, I | kona mau wai- | wai | I ke kūʻai a hā- |ʻawi lilo aku, | I ka poʻe nele a hu-| ne | Huli aʻe ʻo Iesū | lā | Pane aku i ka ʻō- | pio " ʻA- |ʻole aʻe hiki ke ka- | naka wai- | wai. | I ke aupuni o ka | lani" [refrain]
4. Then the rich young man felt very saddened for he had wealth and pow'r. Jesus asked he sell all he had to feed the poor, leaving all to follow him that hour. "If you want the kingdom, leave your riches, seek only God above, Then you shall see the grace of heavenly peace, In the kingdom of divine love." [refrain]
