1. Hoe ikaika sela, hoe a mau
Ma ʻō he awa nani lulu a mau
He holo ʻino sela ʻane naʻe pau
Eʻe aʻe ma ka waʻapaʻa sela, hoe a mau

Hoe a mau sela hoe a mau
Piʻi no nā nalu ē, e hoe naʻe a mau
Eʻe ma ka waʻapaʻa sela ʻo iā hoʻi Iesū
Pili iāia pili paʻa a hoe a mau

1. Paddle hard, sailor, paddle on
Over there is a beautiful harbor, always calm
A nasty sail, sailor, but almost done
Board the lifeboat, sailor, and paddle on.

Paddle on, sailor, paddle on
The waves rise up but paddle on
Board the lifeboat, sailor; namely, Jesus
Cling to him and hold fast and paddle on.

2. Light bursts forth, sailor, look over there
The darkness dissolves, it's full daylight
Lifeboat lands, sailor, sing ever on
Glory, hallelluia; a safe landing indeed. REFRAIN

ORIGINAL English TEXT of 1874
Light in the darkness, sailor, day is at hand!
See o'er the foaming billows fair haven's land,
Drear was the voyage, sailor, now almost o'er,
Safe within the life boat, sailor, pull for the shore.

Pull for the shore, sailor, pull for the shore!
Heed not the rolling waves, but bend to the oar;
Safe in the life boat, sailor, cling to self no more!
Leave the poor old stranded wreck, and pull for the shore.

Trust in the life boat, sailor, all else will fail,
Stronger the surges dash and fiercer the gale,
Heed not the stormy winds, though loudly they roar;
Watch the "bright and morning Star," and pull for the shore! REFRAIN

Bright gleams the morning, sailor, uplift the eye;
Clouds and darkness disappearing, glory is nigh!
Safe in the life boat, sailor, sing evermore;
"Glory, glory, hallelujah!" pull for the shore. REFRAIN
