Mountain of Makiling
Mountain of praise and historic;
Your innate charm is bewildering
Way of wisdom you are the path
In four corners you are erected.
You are ginatala of the linghod sun
Until kissed with too much sweetness;
Bidding goodbye this huban longing,
In returning that will never sweeten.
Your crowned-filled white clouds;
In the danyag of heaven floating;
Takdang mong malasukla ang alipuop;
Thick wilderness you nakanup.
Extraordinary paradise of Goddess Mary;
Refuge of birds and animals
Caretaker of one's treasures,
To the green future of the world.
I saw hope
In the rising sun
Carrier of life
To all the mortals
I saw life
In the rays of the sun
There is tenderness and pride
That is conveyed to all.
I saw sadness
In the fleeting sunset
There is hope and fear
In the nearing end.
I saw victory
Of hope and goodness
And the death failed
When the east becomes bright red once again.
