"Bendita Tu Luz" by Maná, English translation of lyrics

"Blessed, Your Light"
Album: Amar es Combatir (To Love is to Fight)
Style: Sweet, love song
Country: Mexico

Bendito el lugar, y el motivo de estar ahí,
Bendita la coincidencia,
Bendito el reloj que nos puso puntual ahí,
Bendita sea tu presencia.


Blessed location, and the motive for being there,
Blessed the coincidence,
Blessed clock that set us there punctually,
Blessed be your presence.

Bendito Dios por encontrarnos en el camino,
Y de quitarme esta soledad de mi destino.

Bendita la luz, bendita la luz de tu mirada (x2)
Desde el alma.


Blessed God for us meeting on the road,
And for taking away this solitude from my destiny.
Blessed be the light, blessed be the light of your gaze (x2)
Coming from the soul.

Benditos ojos que me esquivaban,
Simulaban desde que me ignoraban,
Y de repente, sostienes la mirada.


Blessed eyes that shyly avoided me,
Pretending all along that they ignored me,
And suddenly, you sustain(ed) your gaze.

Bendita Dios por encontrarnos en el camino,
Y de quitarme esta soledad de mi destino.
Bendita la luz, bendita la luz de tu mirada (x2).


Blessed God for us meeting on the road,
And for taking away this solitude from my destiny.
Blessed be the light, blessed be the light of your gaze (x2).

Gloria divina, diste suerte de buen tino,
Y de encontrarte justo ahí, en medio del camino,
Gloria al cielo de encontrarte ahora,
Llevarte mi soledad, y coincidir en mi destino,
En el mismo destino.


Glory divine, you gave luck with good aim,
And for finding you just there, in the middle of the road,
Glory to heaven for finding you now,
Taking my solitude to you, and coinciding in my destiny,
In the same destiny.

Bendita la luz, bendita la luz de tu mirada (x2)
Bendita mirada, bendita mirada desde el alma, tu mirada,
Bendita, bendita, bendita mirada,
Bendita tu alma y bendita tu luz.


Blessed be the light, blessed be the light of your gaze (x2)
Blessed gaze, blessed gaze coming from the soul, your gaze,
Blessed, blessed, blessed gaze,
Blessed be your soul and blessed be your light.

Tu mirada, oh, oh, oh,
Digo es tan bendita tu luz, amor, amor,
Bendito el reloj y bendito el lugar,
Benditos tus besos cerquita del mar,
Y tu mirada, amor, amor,
Que bendita tú mirada, tu mirada, amor.


Your gaze, oh, oh, oh,
I say your gaze is so blessed, my love, my love,
Blessed clock and blessed location,
Blessed are your kisses near the sea,
And your gaze, my love, my love,
How blessed your gaze, your gaze, my love.

Translation Notes:

Bendito Dios por encontrarnos en el camino
Blessed God for us meeting on the road [*lit.]
Blessed God for introducing us to each other on the road [*alt. lit.]

Listen:

Live performance at YouTube. Now here's a guy playing the acoustic. Maná sings a lot of bittersweet, ambiguous, and energetic songs. They sing about desperation and sexual tension and poverty and all sorts of sad affairs. This is none of that. This is a song about pure happiness and romantic bliss. It's very sweet.
