Bayan Ko

Ang bayan kong Pilipinas,
lupain ng ginto’t bulaklak.
Pag-ibig ang sa kaniyáng palad,
nag-alay ng ganda’t dilág.
At sa kaniyáng yumi at ganda,
dayuhan ay nahalina.
Bayan ko, binihag ka,
nasadlak sa dusa.
 
Ibon mang may layang lumipad,
kulungin mo at umiiyak!
Bayan pa kayáng sakdal-dilag,
ang ‘di magnasang makaalpas?
Pilipinas kong minumutya,
pugad ng luhá ko’t dalita,
aking adhika:
makita kang sakdal laya!
 
Translation

My Country

Philippines beloved land of mine,
Where the gold and gorgeous flowers shine.
Love's the jewel of her destiny,
Unequaled in its majesty.
Tyrants drawn by her splendor,
Did suppress her gentle candor;
Native land, they forced their will,
and made your suffer still.
 
Even birds that freely roam the sky,
Loudly weep when not allowed to fly,
How much more for people long oppressed,
How they yearn for freedom, love, and rest.
Philippines the land I love so true,
All my tears and pains are weaved in you,
It's my dream therefore,
To see you free forevermore.
