OFFICIAL OPENING PRAYER, PHILIPINE NATIONAL ANTHEM, UAP MARCH, & ARCHITECT'S CREDO 

OPENING PRAYER

O Lord, we cry for peace.

Purify our eyes to see peace;

Purify our minds to understand peace;

Purify our hearts to love peace,

Purify our memories to work for peace; the peace that comes from Your love and compassion.

O Lord, Sustain our vision of peace following Your inspiration.

You may have many ways of revealing Your presence and love for humanity;

But style is constant;

You are in dialogue with all; You care for all.

Make us, O Lord, a sign of Your peace.

Living in dialogue with You to understand Your silence and Your presence, in dialogue with ourselves to rediscover the meaning of life

In dialogue with others to move together in harmony with all and in dialogue with creation to care for earth.

Give us, O Lord, the courage to live in dialogue, in the midst of divisions and conflicts and to build peace with all people of sincere hearts, who believe in love and compassion.

Amen.

Sworn to uphold our profession's dignity;

With humble hearts, patience, and with dedication;

Loyal to the UAP

LUPANG HINIRANG

Philippine National Anthem

Bayang magiliw,
Perlas ng silanganan,
Alab ng puso
Sa dibdib mo'y buhay.

Lupang hinirang,
Duyan ka ng magiting,
Sa manlulupig
Di ka pasisiil.

Sa dagat at bundok,
Sa simoy at sa langit mong bughaw,
May dilag ang tula
At awit sa paglayang minamahal.

Ang kislap ng watawat mo'y
Tagumpay na nagniningning;
Ang bituin at araw niya,
Kailan pa ma'y di magdidilim.

Lupa ng araw, ng luwalhati't pagsinta,
Buhay ay langit sa piling mo;
Aming ligaya na 'pag may mang-aapi,
Ang mamatay nang dahil sa 'yo.
