Pilipinas Kong Mahal (English: My Beloved Philippines) is one of the most popular patriotic songs in the Philippines, others being Bayan Ko ("My Country") and Magkaisa ("Unite"). In the Philippines, patriotic songs are often sung by people at political rallies, protests and demonstrations. These are also performed in plays and patriotic song or dance numbers, especially in schools during Araw ng Kasarinlán (Independence Day) celebrations in June and Buwan ng Wikà (Language Month) in August.

This specific song is usually sung during flag retreat.



Ang bayan ko'y tanging ikaw,
Pilipinas kong mahal.
Ang puso ko at buhay man,
sa iyo'y ibibigay.
Tungkulin kong gagampanan,
na lagi kang paglingkuran.
Ang laya mo'y babantayan,
Pilipinas kong hirang.

Literal English translation[edit]

Country mine alone art thee,
Philippines, my beloved
My heart and even life,
to thee I shall give.
My duty I shall fulfill,
to always thee serve, [and]
freedom thine, to guard,
Philippines, my chosen.
