Ku‘u ‘I‘ini  (1921) 
by Charles E. King

Auhea wale ana ‘oe
He hali‘a ka i hiki mai
Me he ala e i mai ana
Aia i laila ke aloha

Eia me au ka ‘i‘ini
Nou e ku‘u lei poina ‘ole
I walea ka nohona iho
Me ‘oe ku‘u ipo nohea

Ho‘i mai ho‘i mai ke aloha
Oi‘ai ka manawa kūpono
Na wai e ‘ole ka ‘i‘ini
I ka pua nani mae ‘ole

Puapua‘i mai ana ke aloha
I ho‘opê ia e ka liko lehua
Aia i laila ku‘u ‘i‘ini
Me ‘oe ke aloha niponipo

Ko aloha ka‘u e hi‘ipoinei
He aloha ‘oe no na kau a kau
Ho‘i mai ho‘i mai kāua e pili
E lei e ku‘u lei poina ‘ole
