Iloilo City Hymn Lyrics featuring places and events in the city of Iloilo

“Himno Sang Dakbanwa Sang Iloilo” - Iloilo City Hymn
Lyrics and Music by: Prof. Arne Lubasan


Puluy-an ka sang mga dungganon
Guindihon sa imong gugmang bilidhon
Namat-an sang mga baganihan
Nakigbato para sa kahilwayan


Dunang manggad sa amon guin-aman
Manggaran sa kulturang kinaadman
May maragtas nga madinu-agon
Bulawanon ang mga palanubli-on


Iloilo, Iloilo
Dakbanwa kong nahamut-an
Iloilo, Iloilo
Bugal magpadulong diin man
Tampad nga magpabilin sa imo
Tungod palangga ko
Dakbanwang Iloilo, bugal ko!


Himpit nga gugma sa imo halad
Sakdagon ang imong katuyuan
Itib-ong ang kauswagan
Padayun nga angkunon ang katin-aran

English Translation

I Home of the dignified
Taken from your pure love
Cradle of heroes
Fought for freedom

Natural resources bestowed on us
Rich in indigenous culture
Has a colorful history
Golden heritage


Iloilo, Iloilo
My hometown I love
Iloilo, Iloilo
The pride which will be carried anywhere
Faithfully stays with you
Because I love
My city, my pride!


Formidable love I offer to you
Patronize your intentions
Promote progress
Continue to own prosperity
