    Bayang magiliw, Perlas ng silanganan,
    Alab ng puso, Sa dibdib mo’y buhay.
    Lupang hinirang, Duyan ka ng magiting,
    Sa manlulupig 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 watawat 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 nang dahil sa iyo.

    Here is my personal translation of the first part…
    Beloved country, pearl of the orient
    Warmth of the heart is in my breast
    Claimed land, land of the brave
    To the conquerors you will not submit.

    Here is my personal translation of the 2nd part…
    In the seas and mountains, the atmosphere and the skies
    There’s a lady wanting liberty
    Your flag is shining in glory
    The stars and the sun will never fade.
    Someday the glory and love
    It is heaven to be with you
    It is my desire when there is a conqueror
    To die for you.

    Just to add, the singing of the national anthem has a position that the right hand should be on the left part of the chest that symbolizes the heart. You also have to stand because failure to stand can be considered a minor crime and can land you to jail. Not so many know abut that law of standing when the national anthem is played.
