Aloha ‘Oe 

by Queen Lili’oukalani

Haʻaheo e ka ua i nā pali

(Proudly swept the rain by the cliffs)

Ke nihi aʻela i ka nahele

(As it glided through the trees)

E hahai (uhai) ana paha i ka liko

(Still following ever the bud)

Pua ʻāhihi lehua o uka

(The ʻāhihi lehua of the vale)

Aloha ʻoe, aloha ʻoe

(Farewell to thee, farewell to thee)

E ke onaona noho i ka lipo

(The charming one who dwells in the shaded bowers)

One fond embrace

(One fond embrace)

A hoʻi aʻe au

('Ere I depart)

Until we meet again
       (Until we meet again)
