Lion of the Philippines!

Hail to the Lion -
defender of the people,
born and reborn again anew
through the spirit of thy election
resting mightily in thee!

Hail to the Lion -
guardian of the free,
reign over the darkness,
lead us ever unto the Morning
and onward to destiny!

Hail to the Lion -
keeper of the memory,
grant that thou may always remember -
thou art the scion of all our heroes
and faithful forever!

O Lion of the Philippines -
may the timeless glories of our nation;
its life, its love, its faith, its promise -
ever shine its eternal light upon thee
that it may in times of trial
and through deepest darkness
preserve in thee thy vision:
For God and Country!

Hail to the Lion!
