Birthday Shuffle a Deux #15

We're almost halfway through... whew!!

Bendita Tu Luz - Mana


This was our wedding song.  About two weeks before the wedding, we realized we didn't have any of the music ready.  Granted, we only had 4 months total in which to plan the wedding, so songs weren't at the top of the list.

Hubby and I sat down one day via phone (he in Atlanta and I in Buffalo), and we went through song after song trying to decide.  Finally we had everything but the final song, the one we would exit as man and wife to.  I had always liked the band Mana, and I started going through videos of their songs.  Then we came across this one.  The rhythmn, the words, everything about it spoke to the way we had met and fallen in love.  We had it..!  Enjoy...!

Bendito el lugar, y el motivo de estar ahí, (blessed the place and the reason for being there)
Bendita la coincidencia, (blessed the coincidence)
Bendito el reloj, que nos puso puntual ahí, (blessed the clock, that put both us both there at the same time)
Bendita sea tu presencia. (blessed is your presence)

Bendito Dios por encontrarnos, en el camino, (blessed God for finding us on the same road)
Y de quitarme esta soledad, de mi destino. (and for taking away loneliness from my destiny)

Bendita la luz, bendita la luz de tu mirada, (blessed the light, blessed the light of your glance)
Bendita la luz, bendita la luz de tu mirada, (blessed the light, blessed the light of your glance)
Desde el alma. (from the soul)

Bendito ojos, que me esquivaban, (blessed eyes that peeked at me)
Simulaban desde que me ignoraban, (stimulating even though they seemed to ignore me)
Y de repente, sostienes la mirada. (and suddenly you held the gaze)

Bendito Dios por encontrarnos, en el camino, (blessed God for finding us on the same road)
Y de quitarme esta soledad, de mi destino. (and for taking away loneliness from my destiny)

Bendita la luz, bendita la luz de tu mirada, (blessed the light, blessed the light of your glance)
Bendita la luz, bendita la luz de tu mirada, (blessed the light, blessed the light of your glance)

Gloria divina, diste suerte de buen tino, (Divine glory, you gave luck)
Y de encontrarte justo ahí, en medio del camino, (and to find you there in the middle of the road)
Gloria al cielo de encontrarte ahora, (Glory to heaven for finding you now)
Llevarte mi soledad, y coincidir en mi destino, (Taking away my lonliness and putting my fate together)
En el mismo destino. (in the same fate)

Bendita la luz, bendita la luz de tu mirada,
Bendita la luz, bendita la luz de tu mirada,
Bendita mirada,
Bendita mirada desde el alma, tu mirada,
Bendita, bendita, bendita mirada,
Bendita tu alma y bendita tu luz.

Tu mirada, oh, oh, oh,
Digo es tan bendita tu luz, amor, amor,
Bendito el reloj y bendito el lugar, (blessed the clock and blessed the place)
Benditos tus besos cerquita del mar, (blessed your kisses close to the sea)
Y tu mirada, amor, amor, (and your glance, love, love)
Que bendita tú mirada, tu mirada amor.
