Payapang Daigdig

Ang gabi’y payapa
Lahat ay tahimik
Pati mga tala
Sa bughaw na langit

Kay hinhin ng hangin
Waring umiibig
Sa kapayapaan
Ng buong daigdig



Peaceful World – 1946
Music – Felipe Padilla de Leon, National Artist for Music
Lyrics – Eduardo de Leon and Brigido Batungbakal

Payapang Daigdig is hailed as the local counterpart of the traditional Western
carol “Silent Night,” the song was inspired by the ending of World War II.
(CCP Encyclopedia of Philippine Art. Manila: Cultural Center of the Philippines, 1994.)
