Al Sagrado Corazón de Jesús (To The Sacred Heart of Jesus) by Manuel Bernabé

Posted on

Manuel Bernabé‘s famous poem, Al Sagrado Corazón de Jesús, commonly known as No Más Amor Que El Tuyo (No Greater Love Than Yours), was made even more popular when it was turned into a song during the 1930s. It used to be sung in all Philippine churches during Masses and other religious activities, even by those who were not Spanish speakers. Below is a recording of the song done many years ago by Señor Guillermo Gómez (it was uploaded in YouTube by our friend Fonsucu).

Today, this song is rarely heard. But now that Spanish is fast becoming popular again, the Filipino people must bring this song back to their religious life.

DID YOU KNOW?!: The opening lines of popular noontime show Eat Bulaga!’s theme song was inspired by this poem/song. This song was also sung during the funeral mass of current President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino’s dad, whose parents (Don Benigno Aquino, Sr. and Doña Aurora Aquino de Aquino) were both native Spanish speakers.

¡El idioma español debería estar de vuelta en Filipinas! ¡Ya es la hora!

    I still heard this song every Friday evening in Holy Trinity parish (Sampaloc, Manila) in 1998.

  4. This hymn is supposed to be sung on every Filipino Catholic parish. The modern ballads of Haughen and Haas needs to be stopped.
