The Philippine National Anthem in three different languages

Although I was taught at school that Julian Felipe was the composer and Jose Palma was the lyricist of our national anthem, it came as a surprise when I found out that it was originally written as an incidental music and didn't have words when it was adopted as the national anthem. In fact even the original words were in Spanish. I was probably absent when it was taught but glad enough I learned it today.

So for those who don't know yet that Lupang Hinirang has three versions, let me present to you our national anthem in three different languages.
