HE WEHI KAULANA NO KA LAHUI.

Eia Hawaii ua Lanakila,
Aina kaulana i ka hanohano,
Haaheo na Pua me na Mamo
A ka I a ka Mahi me ka Palena.
Lahui pookela o ke ao nei
Hookipa oluolu i ka malihini;
Puuwai hamama me ke aloha
Lokomaikai piha he manawalea.
Kui ai e ka lono puni ka honua
No ka hana kaulana a ka Lahui,
Malama maluhia me ka hoopono,
He manao kupaa me ka wiwoole.
Aohe puni wale i ka Lilelile,
I ka mali leo mai a ke Kolea.
Oiai ua kila ia ua paa
Ke aloha aina i ka puuwai.
Ua ewe, ua mole, ua onipaa.
Ua ku i ka piko kapu o Wakea.
Hookahi mea nui a ka manao
A e ake nei a e hookoia;
O ke Alii Aimoku i ke Aupuni
O ka aina hoi a e maluhia,
O ka Hae Kalaunu e welo ana
