Philippine National Anthem (Tagalog)
Perlas ng silanganan
Alab ng puso
Sa dibdib mo'y buhay.
Duyan ka ng magiting
Di ka pasisiil.
Sa dagat at bundok,
Sa simoy at sa langit mong bughaw
May dilag ang tula
At awit sa paglayang minamahal.
Ang kislap ng watawa't mo'y
Tagumpay na nagniningning
Ang bituin at araw niya
Kailan pa ma'y di magdidilim.
Lupa ng araw ng luwalhati't pagsinta
Buhay ay langit sa piling mo
Aming ligaya na pag may mang-aapi
Ang mamatay ng dahil sa iyo.
Philippine National Anthem (English)
Land of the morning,
Child of the sun returning,
With fervor burning,
Thee do our souls adore.
Land dear and holy,
Cradle of noble heroes,
Ne'er shall invaders
Trample thy sacred shores.
Ever within the skies
And through thy clouds and o'er the hills and sea,
Do we behold the radiance,
Feel the throb of glorious liberty.
Thy banner, dear to all our hearts,
It's sun and stars alight,
O never shall its shining field
Be dimmed by tyrants' night!
Beautiful land of love, O land of light,
In thine embrace, 'tis rapture to lie,
But it is glory ever, when thou art wronged,
For us thy sons to suffer and die.
The Star Spangled Banner
American National Anthem
Francis Scott Key
O say! can you see, by the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming.
And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that the flag was still there
O say! does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
