SONG LINE UP SUGGESTIONS Dec 22 PM & Dec 23 AM (Day 8 of Simbang Gabi)

SONG LINE UP SUGGESTIONS 
Dec 22 PM & Dec 23 AM (Day 8 of Simbang Gabi)
by: JR Medina
Readings:

1R: Malachi says that there will be a messenger, a precursor, before the Lord comes. This, of course, is none other than John the Baptist.

RP: 24 

G: The story of John the Baptist’s birth. Zacharias regains his voice after naming the baby John. At this shocking turn of events (shocking in the culture of the Israelites), people probe, “What will this child turn out to be? For tha hand of the Lord is surely upon him in some special way.” 

Important Ideas: 

The role of the precursor

Filipino:

E: Friendly Options:

1. Bayan Magsiawit na! (Arnel Aquino SJ) (“...Bayan, pinagpala ka! Dakilang biyayang pangako Niya, sisilay na!”...) rather than sumilay na.
2. Balang Araw (Silvino Borres Jr SJ & Manoling Francisco SJ)

Mayroong Papuri. Mayroong Aleluya.

Today is a very good occasion to sing yung Aleluya “Kami ay gawin mong daan...”

P of the G: May I suggest either of the ff:

1. Ang Tanging Alay Ko. “Aking hinihintay ang ‘Yong pagdarating, Jesus” rather than “pagbabalik, Jesus.” 
2. Unang Alay (Rey Magnaye): Suggest ko sing instead, “Ngayo’y umaasa, naghihintay sa ‘Yo.” Now if your choir sings the Koda, you deliver one solid message if you sing: “Ngayo’y nananalig (umaawit), dumudulog (sumasamba), umaasa (naghihintay) sa ‘Yo.”

C: Think of concepts associated with John the Baptist: baptism, straightening the path, producing good fruits. Thus:

1. Awit ng Paghilom (Arnel Aquino): Prioritize Stanza 2 “Ako’y akayin sa daang matuwid.” 
2. Tubig ng Buhay (Lionel)
3. Pagkakaibigan (Cenzon & Abad-Santos) 
4. Pananatili (Noel Miranda) “Yayakapin ang landasin.”

R: 
1. Maliban na Mahulog sa lupa 

English: 

E: Friendly Options: 

1. Let the Valleys be Raised (Dan Schutte) 
2. Water of Life (also Dan Schutte)
3. O Come, Divine Messiah
4. O come, O come, Emmanuel 

Gloria is sung. Alleluia is sung. 

P of the G: 

1. Dwelling Place (John Foley SJ) “May Christ find a dwelling place of faith in our hearts.”

C: Pwedeng pagpilian:

1. A Time will come for singing (Dan Schutte)
2. The Face of God (Manoling Francisco SJ)
3. Patience, People (John Foley SJ) 
4. Turn to Me (John Foley SJ also)
5. Let the Valleys be raised (if not used as entrance song)

R: Picks:

1. Let the Valleys be raised (if not used as entrance song nor as communion song) 
2. Wait for the Lord
