Kaua i ka nani aʻo Lawaʻi
I ka hone a ke kai i ka puʻe ʻone

O ka noe mai a ka ua liʻiliʻi
Ka pipiʻo mai a ke anuenue

O ke kani hone a ka leo a ka manu
Honehone lua i ka pili o ke ao

Noho mai Alekana me ka ʻoluʻolu
Puʻuwai hamama me ke aloha

Haʻina ʻia mai ana ka puana
A he nani Lawaʻi i kaʻu ike

You and I shall see the beauty of Lawa`i
Where the sea whispers to the sand dunes

The light showers come with the mist
And the rainbow arches on high

The voices of the birds are ever sweet
Sweetest of all at the break of day

There Alexander lives in comfort
A kindly, gracious person is he

This is the end of my song
Of Lawa'i, beautiful to see
