I watched the sun this morning rise

And pure light to overcast skies

A bird flew lazily overhead

And sound the land to mourn the dead

Deep in "Batan" we know not where

Our soldiers breathe the enchanting air

And hope that someday they may see

A country that is great and free

They stand with vigor and with pride

To hold and win a countrys' side

In God they trust and know that this

Will see them through the midst

Of he who thought to break our will

And make us yield and not to kill

And know that in our heart there runs

A blood and fire that is never outdone

He should have known that sword and gun

Could never conquer our native sons
