Kauikeôlani (Place in the Skies) - Traditional 

Lei aku au i ke `ala
Ke `ala o ka `awapuhi
Onaona wale ho`i ia uka
I ka uka `iu`iu a`o Nu`uanu

Noho aku au ho`olono
Ka hoene mai a nâ manu
Ke `ala onaona o ka `awapuhi
Kauikeôlani he inoa

I am wreathed in fragrance
The fragrance of the ginger
Sweet indeed is the uplands
In the verdant mountains of Nu`uanu

I sit and listen
The soft sound of birds
The fragrance of the ginger
Kauikeaôlani is your name

Wilcox, son of missionaries Abner and Lucy Wilcox, championed health care for Hawaiians. Albert donated the land and $50,000.00 for the Children's Hospital in 1908, and named it for his wife. The Mahelona Memorial Hospital in Keâlia, Kaua`i, is named for their son Samuel Mahelona
