    Aloha ku‘u moku ‘o Kaho‘olawe
    Mai kinohi kou inoa ‘o Kanaloa
    Kohemālamalama laukanaka ‘ole
    Hiki mai nā pua e ho‘omalu mai

    Alu like kākou, lāhui Hawai‘i
    Mai ka lā hiki mai i ka lā kau a‘e
    Kūpa‘a a hahai, hō‘ikaika nā kānaka
    Kau li‘i mākou, nui ke aloha no ka ‘āina

    Hanohano nā pua o Hawai‘i nei
    No ke kaua kauholo me ke aupuni
    Pa‘apū ka mana‘o no ka pono o ka ‘āina
    I mua nā pua, lanakila Kaho‘olawe
