Wiki ka wai
Wiki ka makani
Hoʻina mai ka mauna mai
Mai ka hikina a me ke komohana mai
E ma laila kuʻikahi ma ka Honua
Ka mokuna a me paukū o ka ola
Nā kamaliʻi o kēia hanauna
 
E huli ia i ka papalani
E kāmau ia i ke kulamauʻunui
E hāhā ia i ka pā pahu
E hoʻonoa ia i ke kapu

Kanoa

Versions: #1#2
Rapid are the waters
Strong is the wind
Come down to me from the mountain
From the east and from the west
Let there be peace on Earth
The chapters and verses of life
The progeny of this generation.
 
Seek for it in Papalani1
Imbibe it in the meadows of Laka2
Feel it in the beating heart of Hina3
Free it from taboo
 
Kanoa4
