O Ka’ahumanu ali’i, he aloha no.

Beloved, Royal Ka’ahumanu.

Fragrant flowers, very choice
Beautiful sounds of birds in the forest.

Pi’o mai lailuna, e ho’onani nei.
So the beauty of the rainbow
Arched high above reflecting beauty below.

I ka ua tuahine, e kaulana nei.
The mountain mists in the face of clouds
With the Tuahine rain – famous here.

Beloved Royal Ka’ahumanu.

O Ka’ahumanu ali’i, he aloha no.
He aloha no, he aloha no.
