National Anthem of the Philippines (English)

Land of the morning
Child of the sun returning
With fervor burning
Thee do our souls adore.

Land dear and holy,
Cradle of noble heroes,
Ne'er shall invaders
Trample thy sacred shores.

Ever within thy skies and through thy clouds
And o'er thy hills and seas;
Do we behold thy radiance, feel the throb
Of glorious liberty.

Thy banner dear to all hearts
Its sun and stars alright,
Oh, never shall its shining fields
Be dimmed by tyrants might.

Beautiful land of love, oh land of light,
In thine embrace 'tis rapture to lie;
But it is glory ever when thou art wronged
For us thy sons to suffer and die.

II
Subtler charms and beauty other skies my yield

Chorus
Cagayan, O smiling land of beauty
Cagayan, my heart clings unto thee;
Though from thee my footsteps far away may stray
I shall love thee ever be where’er I may.

III
‘Tis not riches of the soil, indeed, that hold me to her
But treasures of the soul; virtues humble,
Loyal hearts with courage hold, Far outweigh
The earthly says the Holy Scroll.

Chorus
Cagayan, O smiling land of beauty
Cagayan, my heart clings unto thee;
Though from thee my footsteps far away may stray
shall love thee ever be where’er I may.

IV
May her sons and daughters evermore aspire
To be faithful, lovely, good and true
Thrifty, peaceful learned, may they never tire
Standing for the right though for the right be few.

Chorus
Cagayan, O smiling land...
