Salmo 39: Aquí Estoy, Señor [2º TO A, 2º TO B]

Lyrics / Letras

Here am I, Lord; I come to do your will.

Verse 1:

I have waited, waited for the LORD,
and he stooped toward me and heard my cry.
And he put a new song into my mouth,
a hymn to our God.

Verse 2:

Sacrifice or offering you wished not,
but ears open to obedience you gave me.
Holocausts or sin-offerings you sought not;
then said I, “Behold I come.”

Verse 3:

“In the written scroll it is prescribed for me,
to do your will, O my God, is my delight,
and your law is within my heart!”

Verse 4:

I announced your justice in the vast assembly;
I did not restrain my lips, as you, O LORD, know.
