Life in Marikina and the rest of the Philippines. Told and Retold, Celebrated and Recelebrated.


The Marikina Hymn

This morning, I feel like singing our city’s very own song — the Marikina Hymn. I grew up with it. I started humming it when I was in elementary since in a public school like mine, it’s a must to learn it. Today, the responsibility and joy of knowing the song was passed on to my preschooler.

Being a proud Marikenya, let me share with you then the lyrics of the Marikina Hymn, a song I know by heart just like the National Anthem of the Philippines.


Marikina aking hirang
Bayang aking minamahal
Sa’yong puso ay may buhay
Ang paglaya’t angking dangal.

Marikina, ika’y dakila
Hiyas na tangi nitong bansa
Marikina, idadambana
Ang giting mo’y di mawawala.
