Panunumpa ng Kawani ng Gobyerno

 

 

 

 Ako’y kawani ng gobyerno,

Tungkulin ko ang maglingkod ng tapat at mahusay

Dahil dito,

Ako’y papasok ng maaga at magtatrabaho nang lampas

Sa takdang oras, kung kinakailangan;

Magsisilbi nang magalang at mabilis sa lahat ng nangangailangan;

Pangangalagaan ko ang mga gamit, kasangkapan at iba

Pang pag-aari ng pamahalaan;

Magiging pantay at makatarungan ang pakikitungo ko sa

Lumalapit sa aming tanggapan;

At sa panahong ito;

Ako at ang aking kapwa kawani ay kailangan tungo sa isang

Maunlad, masagana at mapayapang Pilipinas

Sa harap ninyong lahat, ako’y taos pusong nanunumpa.

 

Magsasalita ako laban sa katiwalian at pagsasamantala;

Hindi ko gagamitin ang aking panunungkulan

Sa sarili kong kapakanan

Hindi ako hihingi o tatanggap ng suhol;

 

Sisikapin kong madagdagan ang aking talino at kakayahan

Upang ang antas ng paglilingkod sa bayan ay patuloy na maitaas;

Sapagka’t ako’y isang kawani ng gobyerno ay tungkulin ko

Ang maglingkod ng tapat at mahusay sa bayan ko
