Bayan Ko

Ang bayan kong Pilipinas
Lupain ng ginto’t bulaklak
Pag-ibig ang 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.

Ibon mang may layang lumipad
Kulungin mo at umiiyak
Bayan pa kayang sakdal dilag
Ang di magnasang makaalpas!
Pilipinas kong minumutya
Pugad ng luha ko’t dalita
Aking adhika,
Makita kang sakdal laya!

Bayan Ko was originally composed as a poem by Jose Corazon de Jesus in 1929, and set to music by Constancio de Guzman.

  4. oh my goodness! We didn’t know it was you who took the pic. By the way, the picture is really beautiful. Now we know that you are the one who took Bruno’s pics. Next time we will ask your permission. Thanks 🙂
