It has been almost three years since I last sang with this world-renowned group.

That's me on the right side wearing a blue skirt. 2007 European Tour, Prague, Czech Republic concert. Taken from www.philippinemadrigalsingers.com

And as I was rummaging youtube to get ideas for a choral arrangement I’m supposed to do, I found this:

 

I would like you to hear this beautiful song that has been my favorite ever since. It’s included in our 2005 Sony Music-released inspirational album, Acclamation where I was part of. This is not the whole song, there’s a second verse to it. Entire text below:

Sa Iyong mga Yapak (Sam Guerrero)

Landas na Kay Tinik sa Iyo’y Inilaan
Bawa’t Hakbang nito’y dusa’t hirap ang laman
Sa kalooban ng Ama nagpasakop kang ganap
Buhay Mo O Hesus ang siyang alay na sapat

Laban sa Agos ng mundo,
Lumakad ka sa landas Mo
Laban sa Lakad ng Mundo,
Landas na sa ‘ki’y nais Mo

Sa Iyong mga yapak, ako ay tatahak
Kahit tigib ng luha ang nilakaran Mong landas

Pasakit man at dusa dulot ng mundo’y kamtan
Bawat bakas ng Iyong mga yapak
Bawat hakbang Mo’y aking susundan

Kay hirap Mang gawin kalooban Mo’y tupdin
Pinili kong sundan bakas ng ‘Yong mga Hakbang
Ang buhay ko’y laan sa Iyo kailanpaman
Maglilingkod sa’Yo Panginoon hanggang wakas

Amidst all the tension that has happened in the world, I do hope this song would remind us to continue following God’s path and trust His ways. Hope this will be one of your Lenten song reflections.

I miss singing and touring. Now, off to bed. Ooops, I have work to do!

  1. Nice to reminisce your good old days with the Madz. You surely miss them but the reward for giving up singing with the group is priceless!!
