Tamang Galit (Righteous Anger)
Paghusga nga ba ang magalit
Sa pagtalikod sa Katarungan
Sa pag-alipusta ng maliliit
Sa lantarang kasinungalingan?
Isinulat na nga sa Banal na Wika
Kapag kailangan, dapat magsalita
Tumutol sa mali, labanan ang masama
Tumayo sa Katotohan, doon din sumumpa.
Hindi magtatagumpay katuwirang baluktot
Kasamaang nag-uuugat ang galamay sumasapot
Kung lahat maninindigan at di mapapa-ikot
Ng mga walang puso, na sa Batas walang takot.

Can it be called judging when one gets angry
At those who turn their backs on Justice,
At those who oppress the poor in their misery
At the outright perversion of Truth such as this?
It is written in the Word and this we all know
When needed a man must speak and testify-
Protest against all wrong and fight Evil so
To stand for what's True and with it swear by.
Warped Reason will not succeed with lies that it made
Evil with its tendrils, will never grip with its hands
If all of us resolve, firmly stand and not be swayed
Against the wicked ones who fear no laws of our land!
