Hanohano o Maui Nui a Kama

Kamaka Kukona, Kumu Hula
Hanohano o Maui Nui a Kama
Kamalei hiwahiwa pua lokelani

Aia ka wai ola kahe malie 
I ka nio poli anu ao Iao 

O ka la welo ana i ke awawa
Awaiaulu ka aloha i ka puuwai 

Waiwai o Wailuku i na makamaka 
Makahehi e na kupa ao Waihee 

He nani kamahao ke ike aku 
I ke ku kilakila o Haleakala

Auhea oe e ka ua ulalena 
Nana i ka uka ao Piiholo 

Holo ke ahe i Maluuuluolele
Lei ana ‘o Kihawahine i ke kapu

O Mokuula, noho i ka ehukai 
Aina uluwehiwehi o na alii 

Puana e ka wehi no kuu aina
Hanohano o Maui Nui a Kama

Dignified is Maui of Kamalalawalu
So precious is the heavenly rose

The living waters flow gently 
At the bosom of Iaoʻs lofty chill

The sun glows throughout the valley
As does love within the heart

Hearty are the people of Wailuku
Attractive are those of Waihee

A wondrous beauty to see
Is the majesty of Haleakala

Where are thou oh cleansing rain 
Look upland towards Piiholo

The gusts travel to Lahaina
Where Kiha is bound in sacredness

Mokuula residents by the sea spray
Verdant land of the chiefs 

Told is the refrain for my land
Dignified is Maui of Kamalalawalu
