Hymn Study & Spanish all-in-one!

Wonderful Cross by Chris Tomlin in SPANISH!! 
Adapted from Isaac Watts When I Survey the Wondrous Cross

This is a wonderful worship song adapted from a classic hymn by Isaac Watts.  We are using it in our Lent activities in preparation for Easter.  I will be posting about this very soon.  We love this song in English, and we sing it here in Spanish as well.  We are going to officially learn it as a family now.  Enjoy!



OH GLORIOSA CRUZ

Cuando recuerdo la Gloriosa Cruz
Donde muriera el Hijo de Dios
Todo lo estimo por vano y faláz
Y mi orgullo no tiene lugar
 
Mira sus manos,
Su frente, sus pies
Que extraña mezcla
De amor y dolor
Cuando el amor significa morir
Por darnos vida Él vino a sufrir
 
Coro

Oh, Gloriosa Cruz
Oh, Gloriosa Cruz
Me enseña que por tu morir
Puedo vivir
Oh, Gloriosa Cruz (Igual que la primera parte del coro)
Oh, Gloriosa Cruz
 
Nos reunimos hoy, a bendecir
Tu nombre, Oh Rey
Con qué podría pagarte Señor
La vida misma jamás bastará
Para pagar tan inmenso amor
Más hoy te entrego todo lo que soy

We are just starting to begin hymn study. Poor Sprite knows so few hymns. I love the bilingual aspect here. Reading the Bible or singing songs in another language enriches the experience to me.
