 KUʻU HOME I KEAUKAHA By Albert Nahaleʻa

ʻIke ʻia i ka nani, ʻo Keaukaha
ʻĀina hoʻopulapula, no nā Hawaiʻi.
Home uluwehiwehi, i ka ulu hala.
He nohea i ka maka o ka lehulehu.

He makana kēia, mai ke aliʻi
Nou e nā kini pua, no nā Hawaiʻi.
Mālama pono iho, a he waiwai nui.
ʻO ke ola nō ʻia, ka puʻuhonua.


Mahalo iā ʻoe, e ke aliʻi
ʻO Kalanianaʻole nō kou inoa
E hana like kākou me ke aloha
I mau ke ea o ka ʻāina i ka pono
I mau ke ea o ka ʻāina i ka pono.



Well known in the beauty of Keaukaha

Is the homestead land for the Hawaiians
Verdant home in the hala groves
Admirable in th eyes of the people

This is a gift from the Chief
For you, the many descendants, the Hawaiians
Take good care, this is a great treasure
It is life, a place of refuge

Thanks goes to you, Chief
Kalanianaʻole indeed, is your name
Let us all work together with love
So that the life of the land will be
perpetuated in righteousness.
