He nani ka pua hinano, ehe
I uka o 'Ahuimanu
I kumu pali wewehi
Kau ai ka maka ia 'oe
'Opu'u mai ka hinano, ehe
A mohala i ka nahele
He lalilali ka lihi
I ka ua Po'aihale
Onaona no ka hinano, ehe
He mapuna i ka Moa'e
Ho'olale i ka mana'o
Ia hanu anuhea
'auhea ku'u hinano, ehe
E lu helele'i ka 'ehu
A paoa ke kulu aumoe
Moe pono iho kaua
Ha'ina mai ka puana, ehe
He nani ka pua henano
He wehi no 'Ahuimanu
Kau ku'u maka ia 'oe.
The hinano is a flower of great beauty
There above 'Ahuimanu
At the verdant base of the cliff
The eyes are drawn to you
The hinano bud emerges
And blooms there in the forest
The sheaths are smooth and glossy
In the swirling Po'aihale rain
The hinano is so very fragrant
An aroma carried on the trade wind
So stirring to the thoughts
Is that sweet scent you exude
Hear me, my dear hinano
Let your snowy pollen scatter down
So the night shall be perfumed
You and I shall enjoy our respose
Let the story be told
The hinano is a flower of great beauty
An adornment for 'Ahuimanu
My eye is fixed on you
