Música

I love inspirational music and I learned about these artists while I was in Puerto Rico.  For Christian music in Spanish, my favorites are Marcela Gandara and Luis Pedraza.  I also like Marcos Witt.  Israel Houghton had a CD in Spanish (Nueva Generación) in 2001 which was the Spanish complement to “New Season. ”

Yo conozco de uno que camino en este mundo
Y que antes que Lenon hablo de la paz
Yo conozco de alguien que gano antes que Gandhi
Sin armas mi libertad

Yo predico de este que sin pastillas a lo Elvis
Pues mi rey sabe andar sobre el mar
Yo conozco de ese que sin estudios en Harvard
Sabe como ensenar

Yo tomare su mano
Porque siendo tan grande El me ha amado
El me ha amado
Tu me has amado

Yo creo en ti Hacedor del universo
Yo creo en ti en tu saber eterno
Yo creo en ti Dios todopoderoso
Yo creo en ti de tu amor me asombro

En mi riqueza o en mi pobreza
Aunque el mundo no crea
Yo si creo en ti

Tu llegaste a mi lado cuando todos se habian marchado
Y en tu nombre logre libertad
Supe que a el le debia dedicar mi vida
Y que signigiva felicidad

Yo tomare tu mano
Porque siendo tan grande
Tu me has amado
El me ha amdo
Me has amado

Música (Otra)

January 25, 2010 - Location, San Juan, Puerto Rico I am posting two videos because I hear these songs everywhere here! On TV, in the grocery store ... The first one is by Luis Fonsi, he was in Menudo for a minute, but the song means "Don't surrender"
I was looking at this one day and noticed one of the buildings. I used to live in that apartment complex that you see in the video! It is in the Hato Rey area of Puerto Rico. Here are the words in English and Spanish.   There are many sites with translations, but this one seemed to be correct and seemed to come from a decent site: http://www.allthelyrics.com/forum/spanish-lyrics-translation/47008-help-translate-to-english.html The next video is by Juanes. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Juanes The song is " A Dios le Pido" (I ask of God) Words, translation: http://www.allthelyrics.com/forum/spanish-lyrics-translation/25552-lyrics-translated-to-english-juanes-a-dios-le-pido.html
There are several videos for this and people are always making their own versions for songs that they like, but  I like the one above the best. So that's just to let you know what is being played.  PR also plays alot of reggaeton, but I'm not into that ... I listen to the inspirational station, 96.9 FM.   And since we're talking about videos, I also have a video by one of my favorite Christian artists, Marcela Gandara, on my other webpage. https://renettatull.wordpress.com/mis-canciones-favoritas/.   I really like her song, "Dame Tus Ojos" which is a song that asks God to give her His eyes.  I've been given a couple of her CDs as gifts from friends here, plus I have her songs on my ipod.

    • Hi Greg!

      Here are the words to “Dame tus ojos” in English:

      Give me Your eyes, I want to see

      Give me Your Words, Lord, So I can speak

      I want to be like You

      Give me Your feet, I want to go

      Give me Your heart, Lord, So I can feel

      I want to be like You

      Give me what I need Lord Jesus,
      So I can be like You

      Give me Your voice,
      give me Your bre…ath Lord,

      Take all my time, Lord make it yours

      Show me the way to follow You

      Give me Your dreams, Lord, Your desires

      Give me Your thoughts and what You feel

      Give me Your life so I can live.

      Let me see Lord, what You see

      I need Your grace Lord, and Your strength

      Jesus give me Your heart

      Help me see that You are love
      and change me from the inside out

      Jesus give me Your heart.

      I found them here and the translation makes sense to me. If you listen to Marcela’s Spanish version, then this one, it will give you a good feel. The English audio & video aren’t synched, so listen to that one w/o watching.

      (This blog is actually about makeup, so I’m not sure how it fits, but it’s an English translation nonetheless.)

    Based on a conversation with a friend on Facebook on 1/26/10, I discovered that some of the spacing was off on the lyrics website; I made some corrections below w/the reflexives, this makes more sense to me:
    —————————————————————-

    Que mis ojos se despierten
    con la luz de tu mirada, yo … See More
    a Dios le pido

    que mi madre no se muera
    y que mi padre me recuerde,
    a Dios le pido

    que te quedes a mi lado
    y que más nunca te me vayas mi vida,
    a Dios le pido

    que mi alma no descanse cuando de amarte se trate mi cielo
    a Dios le pido

    por los días que me quedan
    y las noches que aún no llegan yo
    a Dios le pido

    por los hijos de mis hijos y los hijos de tus hijos
    a Dios le pido

    que mi pueblo no derrame tanta sangre y se levante mi gente
    a Dios le pido

    que mi alma no descanse cuando de amarte se trate mi cielo
    a Dios le pido

    un segundo más de vida para darte
    y mi corazón entero entregarte

    Un segundo más de vida para darte
    y a tu lado para siempre yo quedarme

    Un segundo más de vida yo
    a Dios le pido

    Y que si me muero sea de amor
    y si me enamoro sea de vos
    y quede tu voz sea este corazón
    todos los días
    a Dios le pido

    y que si me muero sea de amor
    y si me enamoro seade vos
    y que de tu voz sea este corazón
    todos los días
    a Dios le pido,
    a Dios le pido…
