Evangelical Musical Sampler, Vol. 2

By semi-pseudo-popular demand, I'm going to continue blogging about the music that la Misión uses in worship.  We've enjoyed learning a bunch of new songs -- hope you enjoy them too!

First up is a song that Laura Jean used in a recent sermon as a way of explaining la Misión's theology -- El Espíritu de Dios Está en Este Lugar (The Spirit of God is Here in this Place).  As a pentecostal church, la Misión Cristiana places a lot of emphasis on the Holy Spirit (el Espíritu Santo) and this song is often used as a gentle introduction to the worship service.  This version is by Jessica Landaverde, and for any musicians out there, you can find the guitar chords and lyrics here.

Our second tune is El Poderoso de Israel (The Powerful of Israel), by Juan Carlos Alvarado.  The clip below isn't very long, but don't be fooled, this one can go on for a while once people build up a head of steam.  It's a good hand-clapper.  Lyrics and chords found here.

Our next song is Eres todopoderoso (You Are All-Powerful) by the omni-popular Danilo Montero.  In contrast to the other song of his I mentioned, this one actually rocks pretty hard.  It's pretty catchy and is plastered all over the Christian radio stations down here.  There's a teenager a few doors down from us who spends many an afternoon singing the chorus at the top of his lungs.  Lyrics and chords.

Our last song (for now) is Está Cayendo su Gloria Sobre Mi (His Glory is Falling Over Me) by José Luis Reyes, which has some seriously Coldplay-like guitars.  This one is also very popular in la Misión worship services, probably because it's just a simple, classic power-ballad that you can really sink your teeth into.  Lyrics and chords.
