We investigate Lyα, [Oiii] λ5007, Hα, and [Cii]158µm emission from 1,124 low-mass galaxies (typically M* ~ 108 Mʘ) at z = 4.9 - 7.0, composed of 1,092 Lyα emitters (LAEs) at z = 4.9 - 7.0 identified by Subaru/Hyper Suprime-Cam (HSC) narrowband surveys and 34 galaxies at z = 5.148 - 7.508 with deep ALMA [Cii]158µm data in the literature. At z = 4.9, we find that the rest-frame Hα equivalent width positively correlates with the rest-frame Lyα equivalent width EW0Lyα. At z = 5.7 - 7.0, there exists an interesting turn-over trend that the [ Oiii]/ Hα flux ratio increases in EW0Lyα ≃ 0 - 30 Å, and then decreases out to EW0Lyα ≃ 130 Å. We also identify an anti-correlation between a [ Cii] luminosity to star-formation rate ratio (L[CII]/SFR) and EW0Lyα at the >99% confidence level. We carefully investigate physical origins of the correlations, and find that a simple anti-correlation between EW0Lyα and metallicity explains self-consistently all of the relations identified in our study.
