Bukidnon My Home – Official English version of the Bukidnon Hymn

BUKIDNON NEWS | BUKIDNON UPDATES – The Bukidnon Hymn – English version was composed by Filomeno M. Bautista between 1925 and 1932. Thanks to Bukidnon 2nd District Board Member Atty. Nemesio “Jun” Beltran for sending to Bukidnon Online the lyrics of this beautiful song. Beltran recently authored a provincial resolution requiring the singing of the Bukidnon Hymn in all events in the Province of Bukidnon where the national anthem is also sung.

Please see the lyrics of the English version of this official Bukidnon song below:

Where ever I may roam,
The distant land to see;
I long to go back soon,
To sweet Bu-kid-non home.

Her lovely mountain’s high,
With forest old and grand;
Bring memories to me,
The home I long to see.

Chorus:

There my heart yearns to be,
In far away Bukidnon land,
Under its blue starry sky
Where love and joy never die.

(Optional 2nd & 3rd stanzas)

II-
The broad and green plateaus,
The rivers winding through;
My heart doth long no more of,
Wonders of the world;

The balmy gentle wind,
That kiss the travelers brow;
Will blow and ever blow,
Wherever I may go.
(Repeat chorus)

III-
The silver water falls,
In distance one can see;
In beauty they express,
The strangers sincere praise.

The long and zigzag roads,
The canyons deep and wide;
Will ever be enshrined,
In all Bukidnon mind.
(Repeat chorus)

There my heart yearns to be,
In far away Bukidnon land,
Under its blue starry sky
Where love and joy never die.
Never die.
