Here are the lyrics of the song Pamana performed by Glaiza de Castro:

Nang lumikha ng mundo si Bathala
‘di nagkait sa ganda at biyaya
Ang kaloob sa’tin ay kalikasang sagana, malaya

Halik ng langit sa lupang malayo
O Pilipinas, pag-asang pangako
Paraisong tibok ay pagsinta
O Pilipinas, pag-asang pamana

Halik ng langit sa lupang malayo
O Pilipinas, pag-asang pangako
Paraisong tibok ay pagsinta
O Pilipinas, pag-asang pamana

Tila nalimot na ika’y maharlika
Yamang minana’y pinabayaan binalewala
Nalupig man tayo sa’ting nakaraan
Tayo’y babangon, pag-angat ay simulan

SEE: Puerto Princesa Subterranean River, ultimate natural wonder of the world

Bayang tahanan na ipaglalaban
Lupang minana dugo ang puhunan
Gintong perlas hinubog sa dusa
O Pilipinas, pag-asang pamana

Bayang magiliw, ituloy natin ang kwento
Iangat ang lahi, taas noo Pilipino
Ingatan natin bansang iisa
Magandang bukas ang ating pamana
