Handog ng Pilipino Sa Mundo- A Tribute Song For Cory



I was in grade three that time when the 1986 EDSA Revolution happened. At my young age I was not able to appreciate what was happening during those time. I heard songs over the radio and seen on television thousands of different types people rallying in the EDSA Shrine singing songs like "Handog ng Pilipino sa Mundo", "Bayan Ko" but never realized what they are fighting for, until it was part of the philippine history which being taclked in the subject where it was explained to us the significant of that event under the leadership of Pres. Corazon Aquino. It was with Cory Aquino that we were able to achieved democarcy for almost twenty years of dictatorship of the Marcoses. It is really sad that Pres. Cory has died but her legacy will remain in our hearts. I hope this song will always remain in every Filipino's hearts. It is really a beautiful song, every words will make you realized what the Filipino people are fighting for.


Di na 'ko papayag mawala ka muli.
'Di na 'ko papayag na muli mabawi,
Ating kalayaan kay tagal natin mithi.
'Di na papayagang mabawi muli.

Magkakapit-bisig libo-libong tao.
Kay sarap palang maging Pilipino.
Sama-sama iisa ang adhikain.
Kelan man 'di na paalipin.

Ref:
Handog ng Pilipino sa mundo,
Mapayapang paraang pagbabago.
Katotohanan, kalayaan, katarungan
Ay kayang makamit na walang dahas.
Basta't magkaisa tayong lahat.
(Mag sama-sama tayo, ikaw at ako)

Masdan ang nagaganap sa aming bayan.
Nagkasama ng mahirap at mayaman.
Kapit-bisig madre, pari, at sundalo.
Naging Langit itong bahagi ng mundo.

Huwag muling payagang umiral ang dilim.
Tinig ng bawat tao'y bigyan ng pansin.
Magkakapatid lahat sa Panginoon.
Ito'y lagi nating tatandaan.
(Repeat refrain two times)

Coda:
Mapayapang paraang pagbabago.
Katotohanan, kalayaan, katarungan.
Ay kayang makamit na walang dahas.
Basta't magkaisa tayong lahat!
