Still looking for chords.

Here's lyrics:

“THE PRAYER” – Ho’okena with Maila Gibson

I pray you’ll be our eyes
And watch us where we go
And help us to be wise
In times when we don’t know
Let this be our prayer
As we go our way
Lead us to a place
Guide us with your grace
To a place where we’ll be safe

I lama no makou, I pray we’ll find your light
E pa’a poli ai, and hold it in our hearts
Ke lipo mai ka po, when starts go out each night
I ‘ike ‘ia ‘oe, that you may be seen
I pule na makou, let this be our prayer
Ke malu mai ka la, when shadows fill our day
Ala ka’i mai (offer us guidance)
E paulele e (that we may have faith)
I ka palekana mau (in safety that is everlasting)

Kahi pau o ka ‘eha a kaumaha
(A place where pain and sorrow are no more)
A lan ka mana’o o kanaka
(And hope is restored to the heart of man)
‘Upu mau a’e (I) ka Makua Lani
(We shall always remember the heavenly Father)
A huli mau ia ‘oe
(And always turn to You)
I ka lani la
(Reaching to heaven above)

(Don’t have Hawaiian words for this part)
We ask that life be kind, and watch us from above
We hope each soul will find, another soul to love
Let this be our prayer, just like every child
Needs to find a place, guide us with your grace
Give us faith so we’ll be safe
I ka malu ou
E paulele ai
I ka palekana mau.
