I adjure Thee – Safaa Hansen [Audio Track]

In this song, Safaa Hansen sings a song based on the Writings of the Bab:

“I adjure Thee by Thy might, O my God! Let no harm beset me in times of tests, and in moments of heedlessness guide my steps aright through Thine inspiration. Thou art God, potent art Thou to do what Thou desirest. No one can withstand Thy Will or thwart Thy Purpose.” – The Bab

The song and the music video came about because Safaa Hansen, who lives in Austin, Texas, and who composed the song, has been singing this song a lot in the community – and everybody loved it – so filmmaker Neal Werle decided to sit Saffa down to film and record the song.

The chords to the song are below and you can also watch the video of the song here:

  1. Really well done, Safaa! I remember you and your family from my days at UT and in the Austin Cluster, more than a decade ago! Your tune is attractive to the spirit and inspiring to the heart – thanks to you, Neal and Naysan for sharing it. 🙂
