24.FebSanto Niño Hymn

Verse 1
One day to these Islands
as gift and in pledge God
sent you to us, o beloved Child
And always you have been,
the light of our souls
The guide of our people,
the flame in our hearts.

Senor Santo Niño,
with your scepter guide our people,
Who hail you king forever,
the World is your Kingdom,
Senor Santo Niño,
in Your hands the world find its rest;
Proclaim your truth and justice,
bring to men Your peace and love

Verse 2
The ship You were sailing,
arrived at our shores
To conquer this land, the pearl of the seas;
But you had decided,
to stay in this soil
To conquer our people,
and give us a name

(Repeat Chorus)

Verse 3
The queen and the rajah,
accepting the faith,
Received you in their arms,
and fell on their knees
They welcomed your presence,
and called on your name
To ask for your blessings,
and help in their needs.

(Repeat Chorus)

Verse 4

More ships in the Orient,
with soldiers arrived;
And searching for gold,
they found you instead;
Legaspi, Urdaneta, the Rajah, the Queen;
Their subjects our people,
proclaimed you their king.

(Repeat Chorus)

Verse 5
Now one as nation,
we pay You respect
Our people did pledge, a long time ago;
We ask You to hear the prayers of all;
The sad and forsaken,
the poor and the sick.

(Repeat Chorus)

    Does anybody have the music or recording of the Sto. Nino Hymn? We need this for our Sto. Nino Novena and Celebration here in Chicago.

    Thanks for your response.

    I Entirely realize what your position in this issue is. While I might disagree on a few of the smaller details, I believe you did an astounding job outlining it. Sure beats trying to study it by myself. Thanks.

    Principles before emotions. Oh, if we but had a few Davy Crocketts in Congress, we probably wouldnt be in such a perilous position.

    I not to mention my guys were actually taking note of the great advice from your web blog while quickly got a terrible suspicion I had not expressed respect to the site owner for those tips. All of the ladies are already absolutely passionate to read through them and have now unquestionably been tapping into these things. Appreciation for simply being very kind and for picking variety of good information most people are really desirous to learn about. My sincere regret for not saying thanks to sooner.

  5. Virginia Narboneta Says:

    I love the Novena prayers to our Santo Nino of Cebu and the lyrics of the hymn for our Little Boy Jesus. And this is therefore to request for the notes of that hymn that our group in our Hearts of Jesus and Mary Parish in Kalookan City maybe able to learn and sing the song. Hoping that this request maybe given due attention. Warm regards and may God bless us all.
