Todavรญa, Seรฑor, hay un gran conflicto en mรญ,
Entre lados opuestos de mi ser:
Hay un “yo” egoรญsta que no se rinde a ti,
Y otro “yo” que te quiere obedecer.

Todavรญa, Seรฑor, no soy lo que debo ser;
Tรบ mereces de mi vida lo mejor;
Pero gracias a ti, que por tu poder y amor,
Ya no soy lo que era, Seรฑor.

You may have noticed that this week’s hymn is in Spanish. This is because I am leaving this week to go to a Bible lectureship in Matamoros, Tamaulipas, Mexico, and I thought I would share one of my favourite hymns in Spanish. For those who can’t read Spanish, here’s a translation:

Lord, there is still a great conflict within me,
Between opposite sides of my being:
There’s a selfish “me” that doesn’t submit itself to You,
And another “me” that wants to obey You.

Lord, I’m still not what I should be;
You deserve the best of my life;
But thanks to You, because of Your power and love,
I’m not what I used to be, Lord.
