Awit sa Paglikha ng Bagong Pilipinas ("Hymn of the Birth of the New Philippines"), also known by its first line Tindig Aking Inang Bayan is a patriotic song written by Filipino composer Felipe Padilla de Leon. It was commissioned during the Philippine Japanese Occupation and intended to supplant Lupang Hinirang (then known in its English translation as the Philippine Hymn) as the national anthem. It was also sung by the members of the HUKBALAHAP, however, the words bear sentiments against the Japanese at that time.

It was later re-used during the Martial Law period as the secondary national anthem (along with Lupang Hinirang), under the title Awit sa Paglikha ng Bagong Lipunan ("Hymn of the Birth of the New Society") (which is different from another hymn, "Muling Pagsilang", also known as the "Bagong Lipunan Hymn", which was also sung after the Philippine national anthem"). The song was also sung by the New People's Army through the title Tindig Uring Anakpawis.

In line with the celebration of the Philippine Centennial in 1998, it was recorded by the Philippine Madrigal Singers in an anthology of historic patriotic songs entitled Bayan Ko, Aawitan Kita ("I will sing for you, my country"), with songs from the Spanish era up to the 20th century.


Lyrics[edit]

Tindig! Aking inang bayan
Lahing pili sa silangan
Iwaksi natin ang nakaraan
Yakapin ang bagong buhay
Hawakan ang watawat
Ng pagpapakasipag
O bandila, iwasiwas
Ang pagbabagong tatag
Lakad at harapin
Pagtatanggol sa layunin
Sakit, hirap ay tiisin
Upang makamit ang mithiin
Gumawa, bumuo, at magbata
Itatag ang silangang Asya
Lupalop na maguinhawa
Kasaganaang sama-sama
