Nā Limahana - Charles R. Lindsey Sr.

Aloha nā kanaka e huli ana i ke ola
O nā ʻāina like ʻole
Puni ka honua
E ola no ʻoe a mau loa

Hui:
He inoa kēia
No nā limahana
E luhi mau ana i kēia noho ana

Kou mau kalena ua kaulana
E hoʻoi ae mau ana i na
ʻIke a ke ao
Aʻi pono hoʻi ia no ka lehulehu

Kaulana ʻoe Hawaiʻi a puni ka honua
I ka noho lokahi ana o ka lehulehu
Aʻe luhi like ana no ka
No ka pono o ka ʻāina

Aloha to the men seeking a living
In the different lands
Around the world
May you live forever

Chorus:
This is a song dedicated
To the working hands
Always laboring for a liveihood

Your many talents are famous
Always improving in the knowledge
For the times
For the benefit of everyone

Hawaiʻi you are famous around the world
For everyone getting along together
And laboring equally
For the good of the island
