"Himno ng Pamantasang Mindanao"

Music by Lucio San Pedro

Lyrics by Prof. Angelito G. Flores

 

Silahis ang katulad mong

Nagsabog ng liwanag,

Ng pag-asa't hangarin

Ng pag-unlad.

 

Ang pook ng Mindanao

Tinanglaw't pinalad,

Nang ikaw'y isilang

Na dakila ang hangad.

 

Ating ipagkapuri

Itong pamantasan

Ang buhay at pag-ibig,

Sa kanya'y iaalay.

 

Saan man naroon ay

Bigyang karangalan,

Dakilang paaralan

Pamantasang Mindanao.
