Patriotic Oath of the Philippines
Iniibig ko ang Pilipinas, aking lupang sinilangan, Tahanan ng aking lahi, kinukupkop ako at tinutulungang Maging malakas, masipag at marangal Dahil mahal ko ang Pilipinas, Diringgin ko ang payo ng aking magulang, Susundin ko ang tuntunin ng paaralan, Tutuparin ko ang mga tungkulin ng isang mamamayang makabayan, Naglilingkod, nag-aaral at nagdarasal nang buong katapatan. Iaalay ko ang aking buhay, pangarap, pagsisikap Sa bansang Pilipinas.
