Lupang Hinirang

Bikol Version
By Luis G. Dato

Dagang namomotan
Aki ca nin sirangan
Tingraw niyang malaad
Nasa simong daghan.

Rona cang mawili
Nagimatan bayani
An mansalakay
Di ca babatayan.

Sa simong langit, bukid
Hayop cadagatan siring man

Nagcucutab nagbabanaag
An simong katalingkasan.

Simong bandera na nagcicintab
Sa hokbo naglayaw

Di nanggad mapapara
An simong bitoon Aldaw.
Dagang nawilihan, maogma, maliwanag,

Sa limpoy mo hamis mabuhay
Minamarhay mi cun
ica pagbasangan
An buhay mi simo idusay
