The Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Song (Chinese: 蔣公紀念歌) was written to commemorate the late President Chiang Kai-shek of the Republic of China. There are two songs, the second song was written by Hwang Yau-tai or Huang Youdi, Huang Yu-ti (黃友棣) in 1975, who later also wrote Chiang Ching-kuo Memorial Song in 1988. The song was formerly popular for school choir competitions as students were required to memorize it. Since the 1990s, under the presidency of Lee Teng-hui, this song has fallen into disuse. However, most of the population still knows this song. The song is still being played daily in the National Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall every morning. Occasionally, it can be heard during political campaigns as well.

Traditional Chinese[edit]

翳惟總統, 武嶺 蔣公,巍巍蕩蕩,民無能名!巍巍蕩蕩, 民無能名!

革命實繼志中山,篤學則接武陽明,黃埔怒濤,奮墨絰而耀日星,重慶精誠,製白梃以撻堅甲利兵,使百萬之眾輸誠何易,使渠帥投服復皆不受敵之脅從,使十數刀殂帝國,取消不平等條約,而卒使之平,使驕妄強敵畏威懷德,至今尚猶感激涕零。

南陽諸葛,汾陽子儀,猶當愧其未之能行!以新生活育我民德,以憲政之治植我民主,以經濟建設厚我民生,以九年國民教育俾我民智益蒸。倫理、民主、科學、革命、實踐,力行,中華文化於焉復興!

奈何奸匪叛亂,大陸如沸如焚,中懷饑溺,臥火抱冰,乃眷西顧,日邁月征。如何天不悔(諱)禍,一旦奪我元戎,滄海雨泣,神州晦冥,孤臣孽子, 攀木腐心!孤臣孽子,攀木腐心!

化沉哀為震雷,合眾志為長風,縱九死而不悔,願神明兮鑒臨,誓誅此大奸元惡,誓復我四明兩京,誓弭此大辱慘禍,誓收我河洛燕雲。

錦水長碧,蔣山長青,翳惟總統,武嶺 蔣公,巍巍蕩蕩,民無能名!巍巍蕩蕩,民無能名!
