Benguet Hymn - Song and Lyrics

These are the lyrics for the official Benguet hymn.

Dear land of mine underneath a starry sky
So close to God where peace and love reign forever
Up in the clouds float her breast that heave and sigh
Her golden crown dazzles the mist in the air

This is Benguet rose of the northern mountains
May God keep her safe and forever free
Land of the brave where no evil foot could wander
Home of the free where brotherhood is sown
Hail to thee! Province of Benguet...
My own...

(Repeat second stanza.)
