  • Lyrics

    ‘O Ra‘iātea i ke kai malino, i ka pō mahina
    Nanea kāua i ke aumoe
    Luakaha i ka ‘olu o ka ulu niu

    Te Mehani kau kehakeha i ka lani ākea
    Hāli‘i mai la ē ka uhiwai
    I nā lihilihi tiare ‘apetahi ē

    I ‘Opoa nā pōhaku kamaha‘o o Taputapuātea
    Komo i ka nuku o Teavamo‘a
    I ka pāheahea o Ari‘itū

    Puana ‘ia ku‘u mele no ka ‘āina kūpuna
    He mana‘o poina ‘ole
    Ho‘i ke aloha i Ra‘iātea ē

    Auē ka wahine ē
    I ka uka Te Mehani ē
    I laila tāua ē
    ‘Uhe‘uhene nei, auē
