Translation of Hawai’i Pono’i

Hawai‘i pono‘i Hawai‘i‘s own true sons
Nana i kou mo‘i Be loyal to your chief
Ka lani ali‘i, Your country’s liege and lord
Ke ali‘i The chief
Hui: Chorus:
Makua lani e, Royal father
Kamehameha e, Kamehameha
Na kaua e pale, Shall defend in war
Me ka ihe With spears
Hawai‘i pono‘i Hawai‘i‘s own true sons
Nana i na ali‘i Look to your chief
Na pua muli kou Those chiefs of younger birth
Na poki‘i Younger descent
Hawai‘i pono‘i Hawai‘i‘s own true sons
E ka lahui e People of loyal heart
‘O kau hana nui The only duty lies
E u‘ie List and abide
