Aloha ke alanui hele lā aʻo Nuʻuanu
Kau pono i ka ʻohu lā i mua ou

He nani ia uka lā aʻo Moelana
Me ka wailele hune lā i nā pali

Ke ʻala o ka ʻawapuhi lā kaʻu i honi
Ka moani ʻana mai lā me he ipo ala

Haʻina ʻia mai ana ka puana
Aloha ke alanui hele lā aʻo Nuʻuanu




Beloved is the road of Nu`uanu
There in the mist ahead of you

The peaceful upland is beautiful
With the waterfall among the cliffs

The sweet scent of ginger
Wind blown like the essence of a lover

Tell the story
Beloved is the road of Nu`uanu
