I would like to thank Jonathan for picking the music.  Here are his thoughts:

Themes: grace, adoption, holiness… they’re all there in that Eph 1:3-6 passage.  Here it is in English & Spanish interlinear: http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=eph%201%3A3-6&version=ESV;NVI

 

1.  Marvelous Light – A (real key) – G (capo 2)
As we’re meditating on his blessings, this song helps cast the contrast between where we are without Christ and what we have in Him.

 

2.  Tu Gracia En Mi – G
Talks about God’s great faithfulness and grace.  And helps those who are hurting to remember that the same great grace that He lavished on us in Christ is available when we feel like we are at the end of ourselves.  Took me a while to realize that this song (which quotes from 2 Cor 12:7-10) has a lot in common with “Blessed Be Your Name”.

 

3.  Me has atraido Jesus – G
Since all the blessings Eph 1 talks about are ours because of being in Christ, Me has atraido Jesus is great as it focuses on so many of the riches we have in Christ

4.  Redeemed – B (real key) – G (capo 4)
This is a great picture of what He’s done for us.  And since it’s a relatively new song, it would be great to get another time singing it.

5.  King of Glory – E (real key) – D (capo 2)
(Third Day version) Another song that focuses on the diverse attributes of Christ.  Although the tempo of the lyrics should make it accessible for speakers of either language, it still packs rich lyrics in a small space.

Our response to His amazing generosity?

6.  Toma Mi Vida – D
Spanish version of “take my life” a la Tomlin.  Here is a video of what sounds like a great translation of the Tomlin Version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1EzQSWNn4qY.
