Celebrating Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month #10

"Noho Pu" ("Stay with Me"), number 2198 in The Faith We Sing, is a short, six-measure prayer response from the Taizé Community.

It is based on biblical passages Matthew 26:41 and Mark 14:38, Jesus praying in Gethsemane having instituted the Lord's Prayer at the Last Supper in the Upper Room and events moving quickly to his betrayal and arrest. The words were taken from those Scriptures by Jacques Berthier (1923-1994), organist at Saint-Ignace in Paris from 1961 until his death, composer, accompanist, recitalist and composer of much of the Taizé Community's music.

The Hawaiian translation is by Malcolm Naea Chun, secretary general of the Anglican Indigenous Network. Chun has taught Hawaiian language and folklore and has worked as a cultural specialist and educator at the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, the Hawaii State Department of Health, the Queen Lili'uokalani Children's Center, and, most recently, the Curriculum Research & Development Group (CRDG) at the College of Education, University of Hawaii at Manoa in the Pihana Na Mamo Native Hawaiian Education program. His latest translations are the History of Kanalu by Benjamin K. Namakaokeahi and Davida Malo's Ka Mo‘olelo Hawaii.
