Videos: Songs of praise from Latin America
During my visit to the Baxter Institute in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, I was treated to some great gospel singing.
Mario Ramon Rivera Valle, director of the Baxter Chorus, got a group of Baxter graduates and current students together to record some hymns in the institute’s amphitheater. (He’s in the green shirt, sort of conducting everybody.)
Regardless of which language you speak, you probably recognize that first song as “Leaning on the Everlasting Arms.”
This second one is titled “¿Soy yo soldado de la Cruz?” I think that means, “Am I a? soldier of the Cross?” I never have heard an English version of this one. Has anyone else?
Enjoy, and see our earlier post with links to stories about the Baxter Institute.
I’ve never heard the song sung in English, but it’s an old Isaac Watts song:
Grace and peace,
