Al Final by Lilly Goodman

Lyrics – In Spanish

Yo he visto el dolor acercarse a mí
Causarme heridas, golpearme así
Y hasta llegue a preguntarme, donde estabas tu.
He hecho preguntas en mi aflicción
Buscando respuestas sin contestación
Y hasta dude por instantes, de tu compasión.
Y aprendí, que en la vida todo tiene un sentido,
Y descubrí que todo obra para bien.

Y que al final será
Mucho mejor lo que vendrá
Es parte de un propósito
Y todo bien saldrá.
Siempre has estado aquí
Tu palabra no ha fallado
Y nunca me has dejado
Descansa mi confianza sobre ti.

Yo he estado entre la espada y la pared
Rodeada de insomnios sin saber que hacer,
Pidiendo a gritos, tu intervención.
A veces me hablaste d? una vez
En otras tu silencio solo escuche
Que interesante, tu forma d? responder
Y aprendí que lo que pasa bajo el cielo
Conoces Tú, que todo tiene una razón?.

Lyrics – In English

I have seen the pain getting closer to me
Causing me pain, and hitting me like that
To the point that I began to ask myself where you were.
I’ve asked questions in my grief
Looking for answers without getting any response
And began to doubt, at times, your compassion.
And I learned that in life, everything has a meaning,
And I discovered that all work for good.

And at the end it will be (that)
Much better things are to come
It is part of a purpose
And everything will turn out okay.
You’ve always been here
Your Word has not failed
And you’ve never left me
I put my trust in you.

I’ve been between the sword and the wall (in difficult circumstances)
Surrounded by insomnia without knowing what to do,
Crying out to you for your intervention.
Sometimes you’d speak to me
Other times your silence was all I’d hear
It’s interesting the ways that you respond
And I learned that what happens under the sky
You know, that everything has a reason….
