Ang bayan kong Pilipinas
Lupain ng ginto’t bulaklak
Pag-ibig na sa kanyang palad
Nag-alay ng ganda’t dilag

At sa kanyang yumi at ganda
Dayuhan ay nahalina
Bayan ko, binihag ka
Nasadlak sa dusa

Chorus
Ibon mang may layang lumipad
Kulungin mo at umiiyak
Bayan pa kayang sakdal dilag
Ang ‘di magnasang makaalpas

Pilipinas kong minumutya
Pugad ng luha at dalita
Aking adhika
Makita kang sakdal laya

Chorus
Ibon mang may layang lumipad
Kulungin mo at umiiyak
Bayan pa kayang sakdal dilag
Ang ‘di magnasang makaalpas

My country the Philippines
Land of gold and flowers
Love in her palms
Offering beauty and virtue

And of her modesty and beauty
Foreigners were enticed
My people, taken captive
Plunged into despair

Chorus
Even birds that are free to fly
Cage them and they cry
More people can perfect splendour
Outstanding wishing to escape

My treasured Philippines
Home of my tears and torment
my ambition
See you fully free

Chorus
Even birds that are free to fly
Cage them and they cry
More people can perfect splendour
Outstanding wishing to escape
