Kalayaan: Panindigan ng Bayan

T he Lupang Hinirang began as an instrumental march which Emilio Aguinaldo commissioned for use in the proclamation of Philippine independence from Spain. Ever wondered about the variations of our National Anthem. Here are some variations that have been used in the Philippines as Nationals Anthems for a certain decade in the 20th century.

The Philippine Hymn:

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 thy skies and through thy clouds
And o’er thy hills and seas;
Do we behold thy radiance, feel the throb
Of glorious liberty.

Thy banner dear to all hearts
Its sun and stars alright,
Oh, never shall its shining fields
Be dimmed by tyrants might.

Beautiful land of love, oh 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.

Bagong Lipunan (New Society):

May Bagong silang,
May bago nang buhay,
Bagong bansa, Bagong galaw,
Sa Bagong Lipunan,
Magababago ang lahat,
Tungo sa pag-unlad,
At ating itanghal Bagong Lipunan

Ang gabi nagmaliw ng ganap,
At lumipas na ang magdamag,
Magdaling araw ay nagiiwan,
May umagong namasdan,
Ngumiti ng pag-asa,
Sa umagong anong ganda!

    Another mauling by the Pangandaman. Here’s the latest news…

    Lanao del Sur Rep. Mohammed Hussein Pangandaman on Monday denied mauling a security guard at a commercial complex in Quezon City and said that he was the one that came under attack in the incident.

    Pangandaman, who figured in a brawl in an exclusive golf club with his brother in 2008, admitted having a confrontation with the security guards at the Ayala Technohub last week, when one of them allegedly tried to draw his firearm toward him.
