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, Bahareh Khademi and Scott Schinella sing “Barter Not”, from the Writings of Baha’u’llah.

This song was filmed and recorded in Sydney, Australia, January 2016.
Here is the quotation used for the lyrics below followed by the quotation and chords:
“O OFFSPRING OF DUST! Be not content with the ease of a passing day, and deprive not thyself of everlasting rest. Barter not the garden of eternal delight for the dust-heap of a mortal world. Up from thy prison ascend unto the glorious meads above, and from thy mortal cage wing thy flight unto the paradise of the Placeless.”
Guitar Riff repeat: D – Dsus4
