Lyrics of "Kailan Pa Man" by Arnel de Pano: Papuri Seven

"Kailan Pa Man" from Papuri Seven (7), asong by Arnel de Pano, was one of my favorites because of its lyrics and its music, back in the early 90's, just a few years after I made a decision to follow Christ. Back then, our church was still in its progress stage in terms of the methods used to reach out to people.


With the voice of Arnel de Pano singing the words of one of the Papuri Seven songs ("Kailan Pa Man"), I was encouraged and was also challenged to constantly be sensitive to God's work in my life. This song communicates a believer's recognition of God's faithful work in his own life. I just want to share this Tagalog Contemporary Christian song and its lyrics.


Kailan Pa Man
(by Arnel de Pano)

Kailan pa man, Ikaw ang aasahan
Kailan pa man, Ikaw ang siyang lakas
Ang tanging tanggulan ano man ang dumaan
Apoy na siyang ilaw sa landas

Panatag Ka sa puso kong lumbay
Liwanag Ka sa kawalang kulay
Tanging hangin sa dagat ng buhay
Katapatan Mo sa'ki'y wala nang papantay

Nariyan Ka bagamat nagkukulang ako
Nariyan Ka sa sangandaang kinapapatiran ko
Kailan man, O, Diyos, pag-ibig Mo
Kaluluwa'y ligtas dahil sa'Yo
Kailan man, buhay man Iyong inilaan
Nang ako'y maligtas sa'king kapahamakan
Dakila Ka, O, Diyos, kailan pa man


I hope these lyrics encourage Filipino believers to recognize God's love that endures forever. For a copy of the music of "Kailan Pa Man" by Arnel de Pano you can check out Papuri Seven in FEBC.

I just discovered this blog of yours through a plurk friend. I also love the Papuri worship songs! I hope they continue to compose Tagalog worship songs. Yun kasi ang resource na kaylangan ng mga churches, since most contemporary worship songs are in English.

Thank you. God bless you. I will continue to read and support this blog.
