E Hawaiʻi e kuʻu one hānau e

O Hawaiʻi, o sands of my birth

My native home

I rejoice in the blessings of heaven

O Hawaiʻi, aloha

 

Chorus: 

Happy youth of Hawaiʻi

Rejoice! Rejoice!

Gentle breezes blow

Love always for Hawaiʻi

 

May your divine throngs speak

Your loving people, o Hawaiʻi

The holy light from above

O Hawaʻi aloha

 

God protects you

Your beloved ridges

Your ever glistening streams

Your beautiful gardens
