Kuahiwi nani ‘oe a‘o Haleakalā
Kaulana a nei a puni ka honua

Ua piha hau‘oli puni o Maui
E kapalulu nei ho‘i na ka‘a

Pi‘i ‘eleu mai ‘oukou e nā malihini
E laula nei kula e waiho nei

‘O ka pa konane a ka mahina
‘O wau no ko lalo me ka ‘eha koni

I pono i ka piko o Haleakalā
‘Ike ana a i ka nani a‘o ka wahine

Ha‘ina ka inoa ‘o Haleakalā
Kuahiwi nani ‘oe kû kilakila


You are a beautiful mountain, Haleakalā
Famous throughout the land

Full of joy is Maui
The cars whiz by

Ascend quickly, you visitors
See the panorama of the plains

The moon shines brightly
I throb with expectation below

To be at the summit of Haleakalā
I see the beauty of the woman

Speak the name of Haleakalā
You are a beautiful imposing mountain
