Let's start the year with hope. This is a piece from the Bible, the 40th psalm., beautifully poetic both in English and in Spanish

"I waited patiently for the Lord,
He inclined and heard my cry.
He lifted me up out of the pit,
Out of the miry clay.
He set my feet upon a rock,
He made my footsteps firm,
Many will see, Many will see and fear."
I will sing a new song"
Con paciencia esperé al Señor; *
se inclinó a mí, y oyó mi clamor.

2 Me sacó del pozo de la desolación, del lodo cenagoso; *
puso mis pies sobre peña, y enderezó mis pasos.

3 Puso luego en mi boca canción nueva,
un himno de alabanza a nuestro Dios. *
Muchos verán esto, y temerán,
y así confiarán en el Señor.

(40th Psalm).
