Sa Gugma Sang Ginoo

 
Nagakahangawa ka sang mahimo nga matabo
Indi ikaw makapat-od sang madangatan mo
Kadalag-an ukon kapaslawan ang nagahulat?

Nagatinguha ka nga malab-ot mga ginahandum mo
Apang sa alibutod sang kasing-kasing ikaw ‘gaduha-duha
Kadalag-an ukon kapaslawan ang nagahulat?

KORO:

Kun ikaw may pagsalig, sa gugma sang Ginoo
Indi ka magkahadlok sang buas-damlag mo
Tungod may nagahulat mga pagpakamaayo
Kun ikaw nagasalig sa gugma sang Ginoo.

Sa imo pagsalig sa gahum sang Ginoo Ang buas mapat-od mo
Sa imo pagtuman sang kasulatan Si Hesus ang tuytuy mo
W’ay sang kahadlukan si Hesus ang kaupod mo.

KORO:

Kun ikaw may pagsalig, sa gugma sang Ginoo
Indi ka magkahadlok sang buas-damlag mo
Tungod may nagahulat mga pagpakamaayo
Kun ikaw nagasalig sa gugma sang Ginoo.

ABOUT “SA GUGMA SANG GINOO”

This song was written around March 1990 for the Youth Choir of Sambag Baptist Church, Sambag, Jaro, Iloilo City. Several choir members were graduating high school and college at that time and they shared their worries about their future and what would happen next.

The stanzas describe the worries that they expressed. The chorus assures them not to fear the future for goodness awaits those who trust in God’s love.

The song lyrics were written in old Hiligaynon language. Some of the terms are spoken rarely in present Hiligaynon discourse. They can only be read in older Hiligaynon Bible and hymn translations.

Below is the English translation of some Hiligaynon words used in the song:

  • nagakahangawa – worried; concerned
  • makapat-od sang madangatan – sure of what would happen
  • kapaslawan – failure
  • alibutod sang kasing-kasing – core of the heart
  • buas-damlag – future; tomorrow
  • tuytuy – guide

“Sa Gugma Sang Ginoo” has become the favorite song of assurance of Creekside Baptist Church and Sambag Baptist Church members since 1990.

All grown up, matured and successful now, the young persons who first learned and sang “Sa Gugma Sang Ginoo” in 1990 have a story to tell and a song to teach the next batch of youth in the church.

From Worry to Glory

Queenstown by Karl Hipolito with Bible Verse

I can see the drops of tears on the letter that you sent me
Telling me how lonely you were and forsaken
Every night you were crying aloud, wishing that I was by your side
To lend a hand, to lift you up and be your guide

Don’t be scared, trust in God, He will carry you through
Hold on to His promises, He’ll be faithful to you

From worry to glory, let Him be your guiding light
He will take you out of darkness, He will cast your fears aside
From worry to glory, just take His gentle hand
He will hoist you to His mighty throne
And forever you will never be alone

You clearly said all your fears in the letter that you sent me
Telling me you’re slipping away and about to fall
Every night you were praying aloud, hoping God would find a way
To lift you from the ledge of sin and make you pure

Don’t be scared, trust in God, He will carry you through
Hold on to His promises, He’ll be faithful to you

From worry to glory, let Him be your guiding light
He will take you out of darkness, He will cast your fears aside
From worry to glory, just take His gentle hand
He will hoist you to His mighty throne
And forever you will never be alone
