Feast of the Epiphany of the Lord

Sunday, 8 Jan 2017
Feast of the Epiphany of the Lord

Note: Singing Christmas songs at this time typically makes the choir uncomfortable, and the congregation asking why. We must educate and re-orient people into the correct notion: Christmas season ends on the Feast of the Baptism, so it's correct to sing Christmas songs.


1R: Isaiah 60:1-6. From the book of Isaiah: Arise, Jerusalem, shine, for your light has come.

RP: 72 Lord, every nation on earth will adore You.

G: Matthew 2:1-12 relates:
1. The Wise Men wanted to pay homage to Jesus
2. King Herod meets with them and tries to trick them
3. The Wise Men finally see and visit the Christ Child
4. They gave Him gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh
5. They pass by another way.

Important Ideas: Jesus is savior to all, both Gentiles and Jew. The Magi represents the Gentiles. Gentiles too pay homage to JC. Jesus as the Light to all nations. Pro-Negritis Sunday: Attention is on the Missions to Africa.


1. Magsiawit sa Panginoon (Isidro & Que). Prioritize Stanza 2. “Kayong mga angkan.”
2. Pagmamahal sa Panginoon (Honti again). “simula ng Karunungan” is a brief reminder of the prudence of the Three Wise Men.
3. Himig ng Hangin (Arboleda, Agatep)

P of the G: Sumasamo Kami (Judan)

C: Pwede pagpilian:
1. Magpuri sa Panginoon (Hontiveros) Prioritize Stanza 3. “Tanang mga tao sa buong mundo.”
2. Pagpalain Kailanman (Aquino). Prioritize Stanza 2. “Purihin siya, mga bansa.”
3. Panginoon, aking Tanglaw (Ramirez)
4. Liwanag ng Aming Puso (Tagle & Hontiveros)
5. Liwanagan Mo, Jesus (Aquino)
6. Pag-ibig Mo, Ama (Macalinao & Hontiveros)
7. Ang Diyos na Sanggol (Hontiveros) “Atin S’yang dalawin”
8. Bituin (Aquino)
9. Isang Sanggol (Ramirez)
10. Noong Paskong Una (Pagsanghan, Francisco)

1. Whichever suggested entrance song above that won’t be used.
2. Pananagutan (Hontiveros). Prioritize Stanza 3. “Sabay-sabay ngang mag-aawitan ang mga bansa.”
3. Ang Pasko ay sumapit. “Tatlong Haring nagsidalaw.”


1. A Christmas Praise “Kings of all ye nations”
2. City of God
3. I Rejoiced
4. Sing a New Song (Dan Schutte). Prioritize Stanzas 2 & 3.

6. Let Heaven Rejoice (Bob Dufford) Prioritize Stanzas 5 and 6. “wise men amazed...”
7. Adeste Fidelis / O Come all ye faithful
8. Hark! The Herald Angels Sing

P of the G:
1. We Three Kings “Bearing gifts...” But ask permission first from PP and Music Ministry. They might see the reasonableness.
