Gayuma sa Tagumpay

Abo ng sunog na kilay,
Patak ng pawis at laway,
Sampaguitang inialay,
Unang pinitas na palay,
Huling tinanggap na sigay,
Lahat ng alam itagay,
alang-alang sa tagumpay!

Victory Charm

Ashes of eyebrows burnt,
Drops of sweat and spit,
Sampaguita offered,
First rice stalk picked,
Last cockle received,
Cheers to all things learned,
To victory’s name yearned!
