David Gates – Lupang Hinirang (Philippine National Anthem) lyrics

Bayang magiliw
Perlas ng silanganan
Alab ng puso
Sa dibdib mo'y buhay

Lupang Hinirang
Duyan ka nang magiting
Sa manlulupig
Di ka pasisiil

Sa Dagat at bundok sa simoy
At sa langit mo'y bughaw
May dilag ang tula
At awit sa paglayang minamahal
Ang kislap ng watawat mong tagumpay na nagniningning
Ang bituin at araw niya'y kailanpama'y di magdidilim

Lupa ng araw ng luwalhati't pagsinta
Buhay ay langit sa piling mo
Aming ligaya nang pag
May mang-aapi
Ang mamatay ng dahil sayo

    Pearl of the East
    Flaming heart
    The chest is ever alive

    Cradle of heroic
    the invaders
    You shall never surrender

    Sea and mountain breeze
    And your blue sky
    There is splendor in the poem
    And song for dear freedom
    The sparkle of thy flag shining success
    The sun and stars in dark kailanpama'y

    Land of the sun, of glory and passion
    Life is heaven in your arms
    It is our pleasure to support
    There are oppressors,
    The die because of you
    Add your reply
