Amy Glicklich: Espiritu De Dios: Spirit Of God

The winter after graduating from college, Amy Glicklich traveled to Guatemala to volunteer in the village of San Lucas Toliman. That soon became her second home. Children there became her family. With 600 children, she sang a prayer that gives us a goose-bumping inducing glimpse into that community.

Located in the highlands, San Lucas is a striking contrast of beautiful countryside and desperate poverty. The focal points of village life are the church and the school. During her stay in the town Amy approached the music teacher at a school to teach a song or two to the children. After the first sessions, she became a regular.

"The village is very poor, but musically rich. The music that they sing and the spirit they sing with are the most beautiful things I’ve ever heard," says Amy, who returned over the next several years to work with the children for months at a time.

During one of those trips, she envisioned a project to learn songs from different places, times, and cultures. And ended up with creating a CD of 14 songs, each from a different country, range from an ancient Latin chant to traditional songs from Tibet, Palestine, India, and Ireland, and each is performed in its original language. It was only natural to include a song she had learned in Guatemala. Glicklich then got 600 children to sing this song, Espiritu de Dois -- Spirit of God.  It was also featured in her album titled Liberacion.

Espiritu de Dios
Llena mi vida
Llema mi alma
Con tu poder

Y Ilename, Ilename, Ilename
Con tu presencia
llename, llename

Con tu poder 
llename, llename
Con tu verdad

Spirit of God

Spirit of God
Fill up my life, 
fill up my soul
With your power

And fill me, fill me, fill me

With your great presence
fill me, fill me
With your power
fill me, fill me
With all your truth
