Philippines My Philippines: Filipino Folk Song

Philippines, My Philippines: Filipino Folk Song
by: Francisco Santiago

I Love my own, my 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 numerous 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 for thee increase,
The day of plenty and of peace,
Philippines, my Philippines.
