Hymns We’re Learning

If God works through our weaknesses and frailties, then I have no excuse for Him not to work a lot through me. An awful lot.

One of my seemingly endless lists of weaknesses is my lack of musical training in any language: musical, English, Spanish, Greek, and so on. That makes Sunday worship services a challenge for me as I want our local body of believers to learn and know and come to absorb good Christian hymns and songs.

I could write a few chapters about the contextual challenges from this point on, but I’ll skip to the end and just say that whenever I get a chance, I search YouTube for anything that looks and sounds and reads usable. Since I am unable to read, play, and lead music, I let someone else do that. If a song has good lyrics, the music not overly distracting (if at all…beggars can’t be too choosy), the key is singable, the lyrics are on the screen and readable, and a few more criteria, we might try it out.

Here’s a new one to me, and we’ll be singing it in a few hours for the first time together. You might know it in English (I’ll post the English version first). I have to admit it’s lovely in English. I also have to admit, the Spanish version is hands-down (or up, if that’s your style) beautiful. I hope you’ll listen to both.

Good music, good words, good worship.

    Did you know that many of the songs and hymns from Celebremos su gloria are on Youtube? You may have to scroll to fiind them. They’re accompanied by a powerpoint and Sara Musgrave’s piano playing. Not exciting music, but nice. Just a thought.
