Lyrics: Cuando Camino en el bosque escucho el viento a través de las hojas cantan Las aves Con Los Rios de la Tierra Mi corazon baila Porque te veo En toda creacion Y En el fruto de la tierra Mi corazon canta, como ramas arriba. Esta tu voz en mi alma Con el sonido de todos los panderos Asi como el viento mueve Los Arboles You Move the world around me Como los Arboles Mi alma llega hasta el cielo Buscando por luz Viviendo en la luz Y caminando en tu presencia Just as the wind moves the trees You move the world around me. Alzo mis manos como ramas Translation: When I take a walk among the trees (forest) And listen to the wind through the leaves, The birds sing With the rivers of the land My heart dances because I see you in All of creation, and in the fruit of the land. My heart sings, like the branches above me. It is your voice in my soul With the sound of all of the panderos(Puerto Rican plena drums) And just as you move the trees with the wind You move the world around me. I lift my hands like the branches above. Like the trees, my soul reaches to the heavens; Searching for the light, Living in the light And walking in your presence. Buscando por la Luz was shot on a Canon 60D, Canon C300, and iPhone. Filmed in Charleston, John’s Island, and Kiawah Island, SC.
