Ang Pagbuo ng Mabuting Lipunan at Mundo

Ang Pagbuo ng Mabuting Lipunan at Mundo
Building the Good Society and World We Want

United under God, we shall develop
Citizens and leaders who love our country
And are informed and committed to the
Survival, development, and well-being
Of all our people and humankind.

In pursuit of our vision as a nation
We shall build responsive and
Effective institutions at all levels—
From the family to the local, national,
Regional and global communities.

Together we shall build
The Good Society and World we want:
Ang Mabuting Lipunan at Mundo
Through good citizenship and governance
In dynamic and inclusive democracies.

A Filipino society united in its diversities
Peaceful, free, egalitarian, and prosperous
Progressive, nationalistic and global too.
A just and humane and civil community
In an agreeable, sustainable environment.

A nation contributing its share as well
In building a peaceful, just and humane world.

Above all, a Filipino nation and global community
That is God-centered—infused with His Love
Whose people care for one another near and far.
Heeding God’s will: “Thou shall not kill!”
