“… The 1986 revolution in the Philippines … brought an end to the martial law imposed by Marcos’ regime in 1972, and saw the accession to power of the first woman president, Cory Aquino.”

Freedom songs of militant optimism Reigned with victorious patriotism Liberty shouting spirit of volunteerism Vanquishing oppressed activism… Music reverberating freedom’s prevalence Street dancing breaking Martial Law’s silence Commending People power revolution excellence God I thank for His bestowed historical opulence… Such marked grand national milestone in my College days Having first woman president along political race After freedom-driven coup d’etat of peaceful ways The Lord I praise for His provident grace… Best of all is my spiritual freedom exposure Midst university culture shock pressure Genuine peace*, divine liberation I gained with pleasure Through Jesus Christ the Saviour Who my eternity does assure.
