New English translation of of “No Greater Love Than Yours” or “No Mas Amor Que El Tuyo”

New Translation to English
No Greater Love Than Yours
(Translated from the original Spanish
“No Mas Amor Que El Tuyo”
by Noel Perdigon, on Valentine’s Day
February 14, 2012)

No greater love than Yours,
O Most Sacred Heart,
The Filipino nation,
Lovingly gives you her heart.
In temples and in households,
We rev’rently invoke your Name
Ever supreme is your reign
From Batanes* down to Jolo

Chorus:
A long while that we have hoped for
Your empire in the Orient.
The faith of the Philippines
is like the sun ablaze
Like a rock standing firmly,
Vastly wide as the sea
These islands shall never be
Forever gripped by inequity,
For on our distant mountains
Your holy emblem hovers
The gates of perdition
Shall never prevail.
(This English translation can be sung with the original melody)

    Thanks Mr Sugon for posting the new translation, and tagging me with it :) Btw, my surname is Perdigon not Perdingon

    May I also share this piece of Instrumental Music to accompany singing of “No Mas Amor Que El Tuyo” which I found on Youtube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XfbojMpU2So&feature=related
