This song was filmed and recorded at Louie Shelton’s (www.louieshelton.com) home studio in The Gold Coast, Australia, July 2015.

Here is the quote below followed by the quotation with the chords:

“Be thou not unhappy; the tempest of sorrow shall pass; regret will not last; disappointment will vanish…Associate thou, as much as thou canst, with the relatives and strangers; display thou loving kindness; show thou forth the utmost patience and resignation. The more they oppose thee, shower thou upon them the greater justice and equity; the more they show hatred and opposition toward thee, challenge thou them with great truthfulness, friendship and reconciliation…” -Abdu’l-Baha

Gmaj7 Am7 Bm7 Am7 (Repeat)

Be thou not unhappy; the tempest of sorrow shall pass;
regret will not last; disappointment will vanish… (X2)

Associate thou, as much as thou canst, with the relatives and strangers;
display thou loving kindness; show thou forth the utmost patience and resignation.

The more they oppose thee, shower thou upon them the greater justice and equity;

the more they show hatred and opposition toward thee,
challenge thou them with great truthfulness, friendship and reconciliation…(X2)

Be thou not unhappy; the tempest of sorrow shall pass;
regret will not last; disappointment will vanish…
