Ka Naʻi Aupuni (The Conquerors of the Nation)

Haku ia na William Kahino

 

E Hawaiʻi nui kuauli
E nā hono aʻo Piʻilani
*(ʻO Maui nui a Kama)
Oʻahu o Kākuhihewa
Kauaʻi o Manokalanipō

 

E naʻi wale nō ʻoukou
I kuʻu pono ʻaʻole pau
I ke kumu pono o Hawaiʻi
E mau ke ea o ka ʻāina i ka pono
E mau ke ea o ka ʻāina i ka pono

 

I hoʻokahi kahi ka manaʻo
I hoʻokahi kahi puʻuwai
I hoʻokahi kahi ke aloha
E mau ke ea o ka ʻāina i ka pono
E mau ke ea o ka ʻāina i ka pono

 

He leo aloha ia paʻē mai
Mai nā kūkulu mai o Kahiki
E ī mai ana iā ʻoe e Hawaiʻi
E mālama i ka maluhia
E mālama i ka maluhia

 

 

Great Hawaiʻi with its verdant country

The bays of Piʻilani

     *(Great Maui of Chief Kamalalawalu)

Oʻahu of Kākuhihewa

Kauaʻi of Manokalanipō

 

Come all of you, stand together

My deeds are not yet complete

Hawaiʻi must have moral foundation

The life of the land is perpetuated in righteousness

 

Be of one mind

Be of one heart

Be of one love

The life of the land is perpetuated in righteousness

 

Voice of love speaking for all
From the foundation of Kahiki
Urging you, Hawaiʻi

Preserve the peace

Preserve the peace

*alternate stanza
