This song was filmed and recorded in Helsinki, Finland, November 2016.

Here is the quotation in Finnish used for the lyrics, and its English translation, followed by the chords:

“Ystävällinen kieli on ihmissydänten magneetti. Se on hengen leipää, se pukee sanat merkityksin, se on viisauden ja ymmärryksen valon lähde.”

 – Baha’u’llah

“A kindly tongue is the lodestone of the hearts of men. It is the bread of the spirit, it clotheth the words with meaning, it is the fountain of the light of wisdom and understanding.”

 – Baha’u’llah
