Lyrics

(Tagalog)
Ang bayan ko'y tanging ikaw
Pilipinas Kong Mahal
Ang puso ko at buhay man
Sa iyo'y ibibigay

<i>Tungkulin kong gagampanan
na lagi kang paglingkuran
Ang laya mo'y babantayan
Pilipinas kong Hirang...


(English)
I love my own native land
Philippines, my Philippines
To thee I give my heart and hand
Philippines, my Philippines.
the trees that crown thy mountains grand,
the seas that beat upon thy strand
Awake my heart to thy command,
Philippines, my Philippines
.

Ye islands of the Eastern Sea
Philippines, my Philippines
Thy people we shall ever be
Philippines, my Philippines.
our fathers lived and died in thee,
and soon shall come the day when we
lie down with them at God's decree,
Philippines, my Philippines
.

Yet still beneath thy ardent sky
Philippines, my Philippines
More num'rous sons shall live and die
Philippines, my Philippines.
In them shall breathe the purpose high,
the glorious day to bring more nigh
when all may sing without a sigh,
Philippines, my Philippines
.

Thy past has little known of peace
Philippines, my Philippines
From want and war without release
Philippines, my Philippines.
then speed the day when evils cease,
and happiness to thee increase
thy day of plenty and of peace,
Philippines, my Philippines
.
