Through Education is the Nation Glorified - Page 3 of 3

by Dr. José Rizal

(English version of “Por la Educación Recibe Lustre la Patria”)

As from the blond sun of the morning
gold emanates in splendid rays,
and as the fair dawn of gold and crimson
scatters its refulgent colors:
thus good education proudly offers
the bliss of virtue to the living,
and to our beloved illustrious land
offers immortal light and glory.
