Lahat ng tao’y may karapatan

tayo’y hindi dapat magpaapi na lamang
sa sinumang taong pawang mga gahaman
dapat matuto ngang sa kanila’y lumaban
pagkat mga tulad nila’y pawang iilan

lahat ng tao sa mundo’y may karapatan
na mabuhay sa mundo ng may kalayaan
‘di niya karapatang maapi ninuman
at ‘di rin karapatang mapagsamantalahan

ngunit karapatan niyang makipaglaban
at huwag mabuhay sa takot kaninuman
kaya nga maraming bayaning nagsulputan
para sa paglaya’y nakikipagpatayan

sa sama-sama’y may lakas tayo, kabayan
ipakita natin ang ating kalakasan
ating babaguhin ang bulok na lipunan
at ating dudurugin ang ating kalaban
