From the Author
Growing up in Guam and attending endless number of novenas during the Christmas season makes for great perspective on creating a useful hymn book like this. Each page is designed with imagery and the songs selected represent the many songs that we all remember growing up.
Going out to the jungle to pick lumot, watching the creation of the belen or nativity, and ultimately attending the novenas, and singing the songs are just some of the things that bring back memories from my childhood.
