I Prefer Paradise

prefieroelparaiso

This song was written by Sr. Estela, SHM. Sr. Clare wrote the music for it. The song was inspired after a girls' pilgrimage to Cajas, Azuay, Ecuador, a Marian shrine where Our Lady is venerated under the title "The Guardian of the Faith."

Lyrics

In the cold night
of the dormant soul
who laments her defiance
a "yes" enlightens the darkness.

The young heart,
that trembled in the face of surrender,
became strong at the touch of your caress.

And morning came, clearer than ever before,
under the protection of a Mother, Guardian of the Faith,
on the sacred grounds
where she bows her heart.
She trembles in love and offers her life.

Now everything has changed,
haven of peace, innocent joy.
Finally they gave what their God asked for.

"I prefer Paradise," was the cry from within.
The fear to give, to surrender, and to die to live was lost.

The Mother smiles and embraces her little ones,
in the silent valley where everything speaks of Her.

"I prefer Paradise," was the cry from within.
The fear to give, to surrender, and to die to live was lost.
