 NOCHE BUENA (Lyrics: Levi Celerio)

Kay sigla ng gabi

Ang lahat ay kay saya

Nagluto ang Ate ng manok na tinola

Sa bahay ng Kuya ay mayro’ng litsonan pa

Ang bawat tahanan may handang iba’t iba

Tayo na giliw

Magsalo na tayo

Mayro’n na tayong

Tinapay at keso

Di ba Noche Buena

Sa gabing ito

At bukas ay araw ng Pasko

ANG PASKO AY SUMAPIT( Lyrics: Levi Celerio)

Ang Pasko ay sumapit

Tayo ay mangagsi-awit

Ng magagandang himig

Dahil sa ang Diyos ay pag-ibig

Nang si Kristo ay isilang

May tatlong haring nagsidalaw

At ang bawat isa

Ay nagsipaghandog ng tanging alay

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
