Notes: This song can be used at Pentecost to emphasize the holiday's polylingual nature. During the refrain, the cantor intones a line and then the congregation repeats it. In the verses, the longer thank you's (such as "maraming salamat") are broken down into two parts and repeated part by part.

The signs between "||:" and ":||" are to be repeated. Sign them facing to one side when the cantor signs it the first time and turn and face the other way when the choir and congregation repeat it as a response.
