Suggested Song Line up Dec 23 PM & Dec 24 AM (Day 9 of Simbang Gabi)

Suggested Song Line up
Dec 23 PM & Dec 24 AM (Day 9 of Simbang Gabi)
by: JR Medina
Readings:

1R: As Israel was enjoying a time of peace, King David wanted a temple built for God. But Nathan informs him that God wanted not him but his son to build the temple. The literal meaning of this is that it is is through David’s son Solomon, that God shall have His house, the temple. The extended and symbolic meaning of this is that it is through David’s descendant Jesus, that God shall have His house, the Roman Catholic Church. 

RP: 88

G: Zacharias’ prophecy about his son John the Baptist: God shall send a Messiah, Who shall save Israel from its enemies. Then he says to the baby John the Baptist, “My little son, you shall be called the prophet of the glorious God, for you will prepare the way for the Messiah.”

Important Ideas: 

The Coming Messiah and His precursor, everything associated with John the Baptist, Zacharias who reveals to us that ancient prophecies would be realized in John the Baptist.

Filipino:

E: Friendly Options:

1. Bayan Magsiawit na! (Arnel Aquino SJ) (“...Bagyan, 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.

P of the G: May I suggest any 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.”
3. Paghahandog ng Sarili
4. Sumasamo Kami (Lorenzo Judan) Prioritize Stanza 3. “Lugod naming paglingkuran, layunin ng Kaharian.”

C: For your reference:

1. Balang Araw, if not song as the entrance song, is also a good Communion song. 
2. Likhain mong muli (Albert Alejo, SJ & Manoling Francisco SJ) “Akayin sa landas...”
3. O Hesus, Hilumin Mo (Manoling Francisco SJ) “Ay gawing daan ng ‘Yong kaligtasan” 
4. Pagkakaibigan (Charlie Cenzon SJ & Bong Abad-Santos SJ) “At kung siya’y mamunga ng masagana”
5. Paglingap Mo, Poon (Marius Villaroman). You know, Stanza 1 could very well have been sung by Zacharias and Elizabeth.
6. Pagsibol (Arnel Aquino SJ)
7. Pagtitipan (Rene Javellana SJ & Eddie Hontiveros SJ) This could very well be a song of John the Baptist and Zacharias.
8. Patnubay (Cuyugkeng, Caguioa, Sta. Maria, La Vina) This could very well be a song of John the Baptist.
9. Sa Pag-ibig ng Panginoon (Fruto Ramirez SJ) This could very well be a song of Zacharias, Elizabeth and John the Baptist.) “Nawa’y manahan sa ‘ting puso ang diwa ni Kristo Hesus.”
10. Tubig ng Buhay (Lionel) an allusion to the baptism.

R: Consider:

1. Kung hindi kinanta ang Balang Araw sa Entrance, at hindi din sa Communion, pwede rin iyan sa Recessional.

English: 

E: Friendly Options: 

1. All the Ends of the Earth (Bob Dufford SJ) Just make it “will come with justice for the world” rather than “has come” 
2. City of God (Dan Schutte)
3. My Heart’s Thanksgiving (Arnel Aquino SJ in O Bayan ng Diyos)
4. Sing to the Mountains (Bob Dufford SJ)

Gloria is sung. Alleluia is sung. 

P of the G: Picks

1. Dwelling Place (John Foley SJ) “May Christ find a dwelling place of faith in our hearts.”
2. Prayer of Rupert Mayer (Manoling Francisco SJ) 
3. To Be Your Bread (David Haas) 

C: Pwedeng pagpilian:

1. Let the Valleys be Raised (Dan Schutte)
2. A Time will come for singing (also Dan S)
3. As Water to the Thirsty. Sobrang swak when one takes note of the parallelisms between the things mentioned in the song as John’s longing and service to Jesus. 
4. Holy Darkness (Dan Schutte). “As we await You, O God of silence, we embrace Your holy night.” 
5. In Him Alone (Manoling Francisco SJ) 
6. Love is the Answer (Raymond Hannisian) “After all the places I have been, now I’m going home” is the natural consequence of repenting and believing in the Gospel.
7. Theme from the Cardinal
8. Turn to Me is also parallel to “repenting and believing in the Gospel.”

R: Picks:

1. Recessional song numbers 1 to 4, if not sung as the entrance song, can very well serve as Recessional songs: All the Ends of the Earth (Don’t forget to change “Has come with justice” to “Will come with justice”
2. My Heart’s Thanksgiving (Don’t forget to change “How exalted Your Name is O Yahweh” to “How exalted Your Name is O my Lord”
3. Sing to the Mountains
4. City of God 
5. Wait for the Lord (Taize)
