the first asisn to withstand colonial forces.

a peaceful leader impelled to raise his kampilan

to defend our land of our heritage,

our verdant isles, that for� ages fostered freedom, place and prosperity

he united the people to resist when the price of peace

was to bow before a forign king and surrender our birthright.

with rizal in the forefront

and lapu-lapu as forerunner;

two proud sons of the malay rice�

symbols of harmony in diversity and respect for each other`s credo,strata, and religion.

both testifying that we, as a country should be united

bear the seeds oftheir their resolute valor

as we stand herewith to witness

the valiant legacy of our forebearers
