The CTAHR ‘Oli

He aloha no ka ‘āina uluwehi
Wehi ke aloha o nā kūpuna e
He punawai ‘ike kau i ka hano
Hanohano wale o Hawai’i e
E hō mai ka maopopo pono
Pono mai uka a i kai e
Aloha e, Aloha e, Aloha e

Translation:
Aloha for the verdant land
Adorned with aloha of the ancestors
A spring of knowledge placed above (honored)
Just majestic is Hawai‘i
Grant us understanding that brings balance
and thriving from mountains to sea
Aloha
