OUR MOTHER TONGUE BY: Dr. Jose P. Rizal

BRIEF INTRODUCTION It was written by Rizal when was eight years old.

IF truly a people dearly love The tongue to them by Heaven sent, Theyll surely yearn for liberty Like a bird above in the firmament.

BECAUSE by its language one can judge A town, a barrio and kingdom; And like any other created thing Every human being loves his freedom

ONE who doesnt love his native tongue; Is worse than putrid fish and a beast; And like a truly precious thing It therefore deserves to be cherished.

THE Tagalog languages akin to Latin, To English, Spanish, angelical tongue; For God who knows how to look after us This language He bestowed us upon.

AS others, our language is the same With alphabet and letters of its own, It was lost because a storm did destroy On the lake the bangka in years bygone.
