Baha’i Blog’s “Studio Sessions” is an initiative where we invite Baha’is and their friends from around the world to come into a studio and share the Baha’i Writings put to music.
In this Baha’i Blog Studio Session, Daniel Mantas sings “Si Consideraras Este Mundo”, from the Writings of Baha’u’llah.
You can also watch the recording of this song on Baha’i Blog’s Youtube channel here:
This song was filmed and recorded in Madrid, Spain, October 2015.
Here is the quotation used for the lyrics below followed by the translation:
“Si consideraras este mundo y te dieras cuenta de cuan fugaces son las cosas que pertenecen a el, escogerias no hollar ningun sendero excepto el sendero del servicio a la Causa de tu Señor. Nadie tendra poder para impedirte celebrar Su alabanza, aunque todos los hombres se levantaran para oponerse a ti.” – Baha’u’llah
This is the English translation of the prayer by Baha’u’llah:
“Wert thou to consider this world, and realize how fleeting are the things that pertain unto it, thou wouldst choose to tread no path except the path of service to the Cause of thy Lord. None would have the power to deter thee from celebrating His praise, though all men should arise to oppose thee.” – Baha’u’llah
