Yo quiero ser

Representative Text

Yo quiero ser, Señor amante,
como el barro en manos del al farrero,
toma mi vida y hazla de nuevo,
yo quiero ser, yo quiero ser
un vaso nuevo.

I want to be, my loving Savior,
like the clay in the potter's hands,
take my life and remold me,
I want to be, I want to be
a brand new vessel.

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
