Marta Vargas Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Mi alma glorifica al Señor
Y mi espíritu se alegra
En Dios mi Salvador
Mi alma glorifica al Señor

Porque Dios ha mirado a su humilde esclava
Dichosa me llamarán por generaciones
Porque el Señor ha hecho, en mí maravillas
Santo es el Señor, Dios de Israel

Mi alma glorifica al Señor
Y mi espíritu se alegra
En Dios mi Salvador
Mi alma glorifica al Señor

Ha mostrado el poder de su santo brazo
Derriba a los soberbios levanta al humilde
Despide a los ricos con manos vacías
Y al que tiene hambre lo llena de bienes

Mi alma glorifica al Señor
Y mi espíritu se alegra
En Dios mi Salvador
Mi alma glorifica al Señor
(Mi alma glorifica al Señor)

Proclama mi alma la grandeza del Señor
Y se alegra mi espīritu en Dios mi Salvador

Su misericordia llena la tierra
Viene en auxilio de su pueblo Israel
No olvidó su promesa a nuestros padres
Y a los hijos de los hijos de Abraham
(Abraham)

Mi alma glorifica
Mi alma glorifica al Señor
Y mi espíritu se alegra
En Dios mi Salvador
Mi alma glorifica al Señor
