    He nani, he beauty maoli nō
    Oh, lovely sunrise Haleakalā

    Kuahiwi nani a he kū kilakila
    Kehakeha i ka maka lā o ka ʻōpua

    Kaulana ko inoa puni ka honua
    Mākaʻikaʻi ʻia e nā malihini

    Moani ke ʻala ma ka hikina
    No ka pua roselani lei onaona

    Kaulana nā hono a Piʻilani
    Hoʻoheno pū me nā wai ʻehā

    Puana he beauty maoli nō
    Oh, lovely sunrise Haleakalā
