A Song That Makes Me Close My Eyes When I Listen -Cara a Cara by Marcos Vidal-

Marcos Vidal has composed some of my all time favorite songs. He is an wonderful Spanish musician and the words to his songs are incredibly rich. I  can just listen to some of his songs over and over again without getting tired and then, in a minute, I find myself crying.

I have tried to find the lyrics to some of his songs in English to share with you, but I have not had any success. So I have decided I would do this for you -and especially for my Spanish students who are a joy for me to teach-

 

 
Solamente una palabra
Solamente una oración
Cuando llegue a tu presencia O, Señor
No me importa en que lugar
De la mesa me hagas sentar
O el color de mi corona
Si la llego a ganar
Only one word
Only one prayer
When I come to your presence O Lord
I don’t mind which place
You want me to sit at your table,
Or the color of my crown…
if I even get to have one.
Solamente una palabra
Si es que aún me queda voz
y si logro articularla
en tu presencia.
no te quiero hacer preguntas
sólo una petición
y si puede ser a solas mucho mejor
Only one word,
If I still have voice
And only if I can only articulate it
in your presence.
I don’t want to ask you questions,
Just bid you one thing,
And if it could be just you and I alone even better.
Sólo dejame mirarte cara a cara
Y perderme como un niño en tu mirada
Y que pase mucho tiempo
Y que nadie diga nada
Porque estoy viendo al maestro cara a cara
Que se ahogue mi recuerdo en tu mirada
Quiero amarte en el silencio y sin palabras
Y que pase mucho tiempo y que nadie diga nada
Sólo dejame mirarte cara a cara
Only let me behold you face to face,
And get lost like a child in your gaze.
And that time won’t stop,
Not one saying anything
Because I am beholding my Master face to face.
Let my memories be drawned in your gaze,
I want to love you in silence and without saying any word.
And that time won’t stop,
Not one saying anything
Only let me behold you face to face.

 

Solamente una palabra
Solamente una oración
Cuando llegue a tu presencia O, Señor
No me importa en que lugar
De la mesa me hagas sentar
O el color de mi corona si la llego a ganar
Sólo dejame mirarte cara a cara
Aunque caiga derretido en tu mirada
Derrotado y desde el suelo
Tembloroso y sin aliento
Aún te seguiré mirando,  mi Maestro
Cuando caiga ante tus plantas de rodillas,
Déjame llorar pegado a tus heridas,
Y que pase mucho tiempo y que nadie me lo impida
Que he esperado este momento toda mi vida
Only one word
Only one prayer
When I come into your presence O, Lord.
mind which place you want me to sit at you table,
Or the color of my crown if I ever get one,
Only let me see you face to face
Broken and from the ground,
trembling and without breath,
I will still be beholding you, my Master.
When I fall on my knees before your feet,
Let me cry holding your wounds,
And that time won’t stop,
And that no one would stop me,
‘Cause I have been waiting for this moment all my life.

Longing for the day in which my eyes will behold His,

Becky

  1. Hi sweet friend,

    This Gringo can't understand a word of Spanish so I put the lyrics into Google translater and I got this beautiful verse:

    “Just let me look at you face to face

    And lose me as a child in your eyes”

    I enjoyed the beautiful music – soothing to my sad soul tonight. Too much negativity online this weekend.

    Love the edification here.
    Hugs.
