John August Pamintuan: Nativitas
SYC Ensemble Singers; guest conductor Jonathan Velasco

Of the Father’s heart begotten, ere the world from chaos rose,
He is Alpha, from that Fountain all that is and hath been flows;
He is Omega, of all things yet to come the mystic Close.

By his Word was all created; He commands and lo! ’tis done;
Earth and sky boundless ocean, universe of Three in One,
All that sees the moon’s soft radiance, all that breathes beneath the sun.

O how blest that wondrous birthday, when the Maid the curse retrieved,
Brought to birth mankind’s salvation, by the Holy Ghost conceived;
And the sacred Babe, Redeemer of the world, her arms receive.

Sing, ye heights of heaven, His praises; angels and archangels sing!
