One long ago day, our ancestors laid their eyes on a gift from above.
We imagine the sight when it captured the sunlight and lit up a path To the Lord.
Since that day, we constantly pray for more gifts to light up the rest of The way.
Here, in the hull of the SS Ohio, we worship the gifts we’ve received.

We have been blessed by an island just west.
Heaven for those not yet dead.

We praise Her by name, �Manehivi, you came!�
To lead us to heaven from bed.

Just to be clear did I just hear a woman passed by here in bed?
Just to be sure, this island of yours, could you please show me the way To its shores?

Sorry, but no, we can’t let you go, unless we can baptize you first.
Over there is a pocket of air. Just dip in your head and then follow my Prayer.

Manehivi, I’m coming. Manehivi, I’m there.

We praise Her by name, â€�Manehivi, you’ve came!â€�
To lead us to heaven from bed.

Thanks to you I’ve found my way to the island that holds all the things That I’ve lost.

Just beware, there’s something out there. The current’s grown colder And fierce as the night.
