Kasadya Ning Taknaa is a Cebuano Christmas carol composed in 1933 by Vicente Rubi with lyrics by Mariano Vestil. Its famous counterpart is Ang Pasko Ay Sumapit, a modified version of the song written by Levi Celerio with lyrics in Tagalog (but not as a translation of the original); however, Celerio is often given all songwriting credit without any acknowledgment of Rubi and Vestil.[1]

Lyrics[2][3][4][edit]

Preface:
Kasadya ning taknaa
Dapit sa kahimayaan
Maoy akong nakita
Ang panagway'ng masanagon
Bulahan ug bulahan
Ang tagbalay nga gi-awitan
Awit nga halangdumon ug sa tanang Pasko
Magmalipayon!

Chorus:
Bag-ong tuig
Bag-ong kinabuhi
Duyogan ta sa atong gibati
Atong awiton ug atong laylayon aron magmalipayun

Chorus Preface
Coda
Awit nga halangdumon sa tanang Pasko
Magmalipayon!
