Bagong taon ay magbagong-buhay Nang lumigaya ang ating bayan Tayo'y magsikap upang makamtan Natin ang kasaganaan. Tayo'y mangagsi-awit Habang ang mundo'y tahimik Ang araw ay sumapit Ng Sanggol na dulot ng langit Tayo ay magmahalan Ating sundin ang gintong aral At magbuhat ngayon Kahit hindi Pasko ay magbigayan. Pasko na sinta ko Hanap-hanap kita Bakit ka nagtampo Iniwan ako.
Top 10 Traditional Tagalog Christmas Songs
Manila CNN Philippines Life — It is hard to imagine any Christmas celebration without the songs that have lived forever in the occasion. Especially for a country with a highly musical tradition like the Philippines, the sights are inseparable from the sounds. The flashy decorations of houses and offices, the customary gift-giving and food-sharing, the long lines at cashier counters, and the joyless hours spent in traffic jams always come with the never-ending music playlists in malls and public transportation, the young carollers with their grating voices and recycled instruments knocking on homes and car windows, and the indoor and outdoor parties whose idea of festivity is overusing bass-heavy amplifiers. Christmas is in the air as much as it is in the ear. And it is not surprising that the very indicator of its arrival is when the nearby shopping mall starts playing Mariah Carey or Jose Mari Chan at the official beginning of the season, on the first of September, on repeat. The popular Filipino Christmas carols have always been reliable as reinforcements of tradition. One learns these songs just by having listened to them as a kid. They are generally reminders of cheer, of the largeness of life, of possibly bright futures, although later on they can become admonitions of age, of the sad passing of time, of the inevitable swoop of mortality. When all is said and done, it is good to have these songs as stable fixtures of life. But thankfully Filipinos have other Christmas songs to turn to in a cruelly social season like this.
This article lists Christmas carols sung by the Filipinos during local Christmas season. As with much Filipino music , some of these songs have their origins in the Spanish and American colonial periods, with others written as part of the OPM movement. It was originally composed by Vicente D. National Artist Levi Celerio also wrote Tagalog lyrics to the song during the s. The song is still sung today in various communities, especially in churches both in the Philippines and abroad. Mao ray among nakita, Ang panagway nga masanagon. Christmas has come Come, let us go forth singing Beautiful hymns For God is love. When Christ was born, There were three kings who did visit, And each one did present A unique offering. Come, let us go forth singing, Whilst the world is silent The day has arrived, Of the Infant sent from heaven. Let us love one another, May we follow the Golden Rule , And from now on- Though it not be Christmas, let us keep giving.
