Padayon [Carry On] (SATB)
Padayon is a song of encouragement for one to continue or to proceed even – or, especially – when life becomes difficult. The text is meant to be a kind of gentle persuasion for one to take control of one’s circumstance. The word “Padayon”, from the Visayan language that means “to continue”, simply captures the idea behind this work. All the hardships that we have encountered must – instead of serving as hindrances – compel us to carry on and continue.
