"Danzo en el Río" by Miel San Marcos (Guatemala)


Martin Sanchez/Unsplash (Iceland)

Looking through a few songs by Central American worship leaders, I particularly enjoyed this work by Guatemala-based group, Miel San Marcos. The tune is catchy and exciting and the lyrics are uplifting. I imagine it wouldn't take a non-Spanish-speaking yet passionate congregation long to be blessed by this song. Lyrics and English translation below:


Spanish:

Un estruendo de muchas aguas se escucha aquí,

trae sanidad trae libertad gozo y salvación,

es el río del Señor que nace de su corazón;

nunca se secará y ésta ciudad se alegrará

Yo danzo en el río . . . en el río de Dios

Ríos de vida están brotando en mi interior

fuente inagotable que viene del cielo fluye aquí,

Es el río del Señor que nace de su corazón;

nunca se secará y ésta ciudad se alegrará

Hay vida en el río de Dios,

hay gozo en el río de Dios,

soy libre, libre, el río de Dios está aquí


English:

A roar of many waters is heard here,

bringing healing, bringing freedom, joy and salvation,

it is the river of the Lord that is born from his heart;

it will never dry out and this city will be glad

 

I dance in the river . . . in the river of God

 

Rivers of life are sprouting inside me

an inexhaustible source that comes from heaven flows here,

It is the river of the Lord that is born from his heart;

it will never dry out and this city will be glad

 

There is life in the river of God,

there is joy in the river of God,

I am free, free, the river of God is here
