O hanau ka Mauna a Wakea,
O puu a’e ka mauna a Wakea,
O Wakea ke kane, o Walinuu ka wahine,
Hanau Haloa he’lii,
Hanau ka Mauna, he keiki mauna na Wakea,
O ka lili o Wakea, o ha’i ka hala,
O ke kuku  a ka manene,
I hoouka ai iloko o Kahiki-ku,
Hee Wakea, kalewa kona ohua,
Kuamu ia e Kane, kuawa ia e Kane,
Ho’i mai o Kane a loko o Lanimoemoe,
Moe  Wakea moe ia Papa,
Hanau ka La na Wakea,
He keiki kapu na Wakea,
O ka uluna o Wakea, na Wakea no,
Hanau ka Mauna,
He makahiapo kapu na Wakea,
Oia ho—i. O ka Mauna,
Hanau ka Mauna.
O ka mauna la hoi auanei ko lalo nei,
Owai la hoi auanei ko luna la?
Owai la? O ka La,
A—ia! Aia hoi ha!!

[And just as the mountain came from Wakea, so to did the ocean. See the following post as well.]
