Awake, arise, Makali'i
In the east, awake, arise
From the ocean, the deep ocean
Climbing to the heavens, the highest heavens
In the east, there is Makali'i
Awake, arise, awake ,arise
E ala e, na Makali'i
I ka hina, e ala e
I ka moana, ka moana hohonu
Pi'i ka lewa, ka lewa nu'u
I ka hina, aia na Makali'i
E ala e!  e ala e!
