Hōkūleʻa au, i ka lani
Ala i ka pō hoʻomaha i ke ao
Nohona i ka pō me ke ao
Pā mai ka lama i ka lani

Hōkūleʻa au, i ke kai
He waʻa kaulua ʻo Hawaiʻi
Holo puni i ka pakipika
Pā mai ka lama i ke kai

Hui:
Hōkūleʻa Hōkūloa Hōkūpaʻa
Nā hōkū i ka lani, ke kai a honua
Hōkūleʻa Hōkūloa Hōkūpaʻa
Pā kōnane i ka lani, ke kai a honua
Honua, e hoku

Hōkūleʻa au, i ka honua
Ka hōʻailona o ka Lahui
Aloha mākou i kou mana
Pā mai ka lama i ka honua

Hui: 
 
I am Hōkūleʻa in the heavens
Wakening in the nite resting in the day
Existing nite and day
Shining radiantly in the heaven

I am Hōkūleʻa in the sea
A double hull canoe of Hawaiʻi
Traveling throughout the pacific
Shining torch on the sea

Chorus:
Hōkūleʻa Hōkūloa Hōkūpaʻa
The stars in the sky, sea and earth
Hōkūleʻa Hōkūloa Hōkūpaʻa
Shine your brilliance in the sky, sea & earth


I am Hōkūleʻa on the earth
The symbol of the Hawaiian nation
We love your spirit
Shining light on the earth
