    Maika‘i ku‘u maka ke ‘ike aku
    I ka beauty o Kewalo i ka la‘i
    Me ka pā aheahe a ka makani ‘Ao‘aoa
    ‘Olu‘olu i nā ‘ale kuehu o Māmala
    Nani Kou i ka ua Kūkalahale
    Ho‘opulu i ka ‘ili o ke kama‘āina
    Kaulana ka inoa Ka‘ākaukukui
    Kaka‘ako ku‘u ‘āina aloha
    Kaka‘ako ku‘u ‘āina aloha

    He aloha ka mana‘o no Honuakaha
    Kula hiehie no nā iwi kūpuna
    Hoihoi ka helena ma ke ala Kuloloia
    Aia Honoka‘upu, ka nohona o nā lani
    A laila huli aku nānā i uka
    Pūowaina kū wale i ka hano
    Kahi ho‘okipa mau i nā kini lehulehu
    Kaka‘ako ku‘u ‘āina aloha
    Kaka‘ako ku‘u ‘āina aloha

    He ‘alohi nō ka lā i Pu‘unui
    Nā kukuna kau i luna o ke ao
    Uhi mai ka mehana i Kaholoakeāhole
    A hiki i ka poli o Kukuluāe‘o
    He makana ho‘oilina mai ke ali‘i
    Mahalo e Pauahi lani nui
    Ha‘ina ‘ia mai ana ka puana
    Kaka‘ako ku‘u ‘āina aloha
    Kaka‘ako ku‘u ‘āina aloha
    Eō mai
