Learning Spanish: Church and Bible language

So I have decided to start reading a passage from Psalms in Spanish every morning.  This is incredibly difficult and often times it goes completely over my head, but from my desire to start my day with scripture, and learn more language for Spanish church services I'm soldiering on.  At the very least my some amazing church friends from back home gave me a Spanish/English bible for graduation so I can check back and forth.  

When my Spanish teacher (Pastor Eduardo's wife Noami) found out I was doing this, she started teaching me some of the songs from our church in Arevalo because many of them are based on Psalms.  She also give me bible verses for the week which I am going to try and make more of an effort to memorize.  

Her is this week's verse:

"Porque para mí el vivir es Cristo y el morir es ganancía." Filipenses 1:21

Because for me to live is Christ & to die is gain? Or something like that. I didn't look it up either.
