OPM Lyrics

“Bayan Ko”

“Bayan Ko” / “My Country”

Ang bayan kong Pilipinas / The country mine, the Philippines
Lupain ng ginto’t bulaklak / Land of gold and flowers
Pag-ibig na sa kanyang palad / Love is in its [palms/destiny]
Nag-alay ng ganda’t dilag / Offered beauty and splendor
At sa kanyang yumi at ganda / And for its refinement and beauty
Dayuhan ay nahalina / Foreigners were enticed
Bayan ko, binihag ka / Country mine, enslaved wert thou
Nasadlak sa dusa / Mired in suffering

Ibon mang may layang lumipad / Even birds that are free to fly
Kulungin mo at umiiak / Cage [them] and [they] shall cry
Bayan pa kayang sakdal dilag / What more a nation most verily beautiful
Ang ‘di magnasang makaalpas? / Would not yearn to break free?
Pilipinas kong minumutya / Philippines of mine that I treasure
Pugad ng luha ko’t dalita / Cradle of my tears and suffering
Aking adhika / My ambition
Makita kang sakdal laya / [Is] to see thee truly free
