'Isaías 40' by Danilo Montero

A recent song by Costa Rican-born and Houston-based worship leader Danilo Montero is 'Isaías 40.' Available on Spotify and already quite popular on iTunes, the song is a straight-forward ballad and, I would argue, is congregation-ally sing-able. Lyrics and English translation below.


¿Quién ha medido en su mano los mares?

¿Quién ha podido formar las estrellas?

¿Quién ha logrado crear de la nada lo que existe y aún con su mano

Lo sostiene y por su inmensa gracia no lo deja caer?


Tú, quien da forma a los montes y guías al viento

Iluminas al hombre y su pensamiento

Revelas tus planes y tus secretos.

Transformas la oscuridad con tu luz

Eres tú, Dios eterno, el que fue, es y siempre será

Eres tú, Dios eterno, el que fue, es y siempre será


Se, que has estado en mis dificultades

Si, Sosteniéndome con tu justicia.

Se, que en las pruebas me das nuevas fuerzas

Tú eres mi escudo y mi fortaleza

Me sostienes por tu inmensa gracia, no me dejas caer


Esperanza y nuevas fuerzas

Fortaleza encontrarán los que confían en Ti

Esperanza y nuevas fuerzas

Fortaleza encontrarán los que confían en Ti


Las naciones de la tierra

Toda lengua confesará

Declarará tu poder


English translation:


Who has measured the seas in your hand?

Who has been able to form the stars?

Who has managed to create from nothing what exists and, still with his hand,

He holds it and, because of his immense grace, he doesn't drop it?


You, who shapes the mountains and guides to the wind

You enlighten the man and his thought

You reveal your plans and your secrets

You transform the darkness with your light

It is you, eternal God, who was, is and always will be

It is you, eternal God, who was, is and always will be


I know, you've been in my difficulties

Yes, holding me with your justice.

I know, in the tests you give me new strength

You are my shield and my strength

You hold me for your immense grace, you don't let me fall


Hope and new forces

Fortress will find those who trust in You

Hope and new forces

Fortress will find those who trust in You


The nations of the earth

Every tongue will confess

Will declare your power
