"Bendita Tu Luz" (Blessed (is) your light in English) is a bachata song, the second single released from Maná's seventh studio album, Amar es Combatir (2006). The song features Juan Luis Guerra on the vocals.
Initially, the song proved to be less successful than its predecessor - "Labios Compartidos" - as it did not gain as much airplay as the latter. Nevertheless, the song reached the top spot of the chart for the week of November 16, 2006, being replaced on December 23 by the smash Ricky Martin hit "Tu Recuerdo". At this point, "Bendita Tu Luz" became Maná's third number-one single on the chart, and their second in a single year.
On January 13, 2007, the song regained its position at number-one ten weeks after its chart debut, which occurred on November 4, 2006. In Venezuela, the song peaked at #1 on the Record Report Top Latino chart.
The music video tells the story of how two college sweethearts meet. A young woman begins to gain interest in a young man while the two are in college. She sees him all over campus and he gains her interest. She tries to gain his attention by showing up at a pool where he's swimming and dropping a hair clip on his head, but to no avail. She finally confronts him one day and learns he's blind. After meeting, the two start a romantic relationship, with him showing her how it is to be blind. Throughout the video Maná is playing in a small club with Juan Luis Guerra. At the end of the video, the happy college couple go to the club and dance while Maná and Juan Luis Guerra sing "Bendita Tu Luz".
