UP Naming Mahal

This is the university hymn of The University of the Philippines, my dear Alma Mater. The melody was written by Nicanor Abellardo, an alumnus and former faculty member of the College of Music. The original English lyrics (entitled as "U.P. Beloved") was from a poem by Teogenes Velez, a Liberal Arts student. The song, “UP Beloved,” was first sung before a UP audience in 1917. And from then on it has been a party of all UP activities.
U.P. naming mahal
Pamantasang hirang
Ang tinig namin
Sana’y inyong dinggin
Malayong lupain
Amin mang marating
Di rin magbabago ang damdamin
Di rin magbabago ang damdamin
Luntian at pula
Sagisag magpakailanman
Ating ipagdiwang bulwagan ng dangal
Humayo’t itanghal, giting at tapang
Mabuhay ang pag-asa ng bayan
Mabuhay ang pag-asa ng bayan
