We tend to grow accustomed to the hymns we are most familiar with and may no longer recognize the themes or stories they explore. But hearing something we never have gives us a chance to take in every word with new ears. So it is with this Hawaiian hymn, “Kanaka Waiwai” that tells the story of the man who asked Jesus what he could do to inherit eternal life.
The song was shared by Elder Jay Phung who is currently serving a full time mission in San Diego and regularly shares the gospel through music on his Facebook page. It appeared on YouTube via Called to Share.
