Sa madilim na gabi, isinilang Siya sa mundo

Sa inyo ay totoo

Ang Pasko ang pinakamagandang kwento..."

8). "Family Is Love" (2018)

"Pag-ibig, pag-asa at saya
'Yan ang lagi mong dala ('Yan ang lagi mong dala)
Sa pamilya mo ang tunay na Pasko
Family is love, family is love
Say we just love, love, love
Just love, love, love..."

Lyrics: Robert Labayen and Lloyd Oliver "Tiny" Corpuz

Music: Marcus and Amber Davis

In times of joy or despair, triumphs or trials, we all go back to where we feel love, comfort, acceptance and hope – our family.

7). "Andito Tayo Para Sa Isa't-Isa" (2021)

"Andito muli ang himala ng Pasko
Kabutihan ng tao ang ilaw ng mundo

Andito ang Diyos, dala Niya'y pag-asa
Andito tayo para sa isa't isa..."

Lyrics: Love Rose De Leon, Robert Labayen and Thyro Alfaro

Music: Thyro Alfaro and Xeric Tan

A loving tribute to our everyday heroes, the people who continually give us hope, strength and inspiration to keep moving forward despite the challenges. The song tells the story of how the Filipinos are able to overcome life’s hardships by having faith in God and by working together in love.

6). "Just Love Ngayong Christmas" (2017)

"Ngayong Pasko'y pag-ibig
Ang kailangan ng daigdig
Kay ganda ng lahat
If we will just love
If we will just love

Lyrics: Robert Labayen, Lloyd Oliver Corpuz and Christian Faustino

Music: Jimmy Antiporda

Love is the force that connects families across the world. Filipinos are known for being a loving people. We solve conflicts with compassion, respect our differences, heal pain with kindness, comfort each other during difficult times and possess a strong grip on our faith.

5). "Thank You for the Love" (2015)

"Salamat sa pag-ibig
Na subok ng panahon

Dala nito'y liwanag
Lalo na sa ngayon..."

Lyrics: Robert Labayen

Music: Thyro Alfaro and Yumi Lacsamana

A heart full of love is a heart full of gratitude. The Filipino heart never forgets genuine and unconditional acts of love and generosity. More importantly, we, Filipinos, never cease to give this love back in simple or grand ways that one’s heart can ever imagine.

And this video could very well be the last time you'll ever see this image:

End of an era *sigh*.
