Arrow Spanish and English bilingual worship songs with guitar chords

Hey everyone, I have worked extensively to put together a website that contains worship songs in BOTH English and Spanish. They also include the guitar chords. I know that many bilingual people search for the translations here so I thought I'd get the word out. Check it out and let me know what you think! Here's the address: alabanzaspraises.weebly.com

God bless!

I've been using your database, and that's really an impressive thing you've done. I'd be interested, if you're still around, to know if you translated the songs or if they're just the already-translated Spanish versions?

For many of the songs, the translations were provided by different musical artists who sing them, to which I have the recordings. I will usually try to find the song already translated because it means someone has already gone through the time and work to do so and record it.

If I cannot find it, then I will go ahead and do the translation myself, which I've done with a few of the songs. All the songs that are originally in Spanish, I've had to translate to English myself. It seems that no music artists are really interested in doing Spanish to English.

This is FANTASTIC!

Thanks for sharing this so much, I'm going to be using it quite extensively in the future, as we do joint worship teams with the local church on occasions during our missions trips.

I'm glad the website will help. It's all for God's glory. We should be able to praise Him in whatever language.

Wow, that is a really cool site. After take 3 years of Spanish in school, I have a love of the language, and have been trying to find songs like these in Spanish for a while. Thanks for posting this!

No problem. Do me a favor and tell others about it, I know there are lots of other people who are searching for a website just like it.

Would you care to elaborate? What makes it challenging? How could I make it easier for non-Spanish speakers?

Thank You

Thank you so much for creating that Spanish English Chorus site! It has been a huge help to me and the bilingual church I attend! I admit though, I prefer to be able to download everything in 2-3 pdfs like you had it in the past. But I just wanted to say thank you for doing this. It really is a blessing to the kingdom of God.

Thanks for your kind words. I only hope that it continues to be a blessing to the body of Christ. Please help spread the word so that others might be able to benefit from the many songs provided!

I took out the option to download all the songs at once for several reasons. One was that people usually go onto the site searching for just a few songs, not an entire library. Also, as I continued to add more and more songs, I had to continuously update the link with the new songs added, which became tedious. If there are several people who suggest the same thing, I might look into restoring the feature.

Just so you know this wasn't in vain, I just went through and downloaded a ton of these songs tonight for a trip I'm taking to Peru, soon . Thank you so much for making this database!
