“Give Me Thy Grace” by Sara, Samira & Shayda

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, we’re on Prince Edward Island, Canada, with Sara Chesley, Samira Eblaghi and Shayda Sobhani who sing “Give Me Thy Grace” from the Writings of Abdu’l-Baha.

Here is the quotation used for the lyrics with the chords below:

“O Lord, my God! Give me Thy grace to serve Thy loved ones, strengthen me in my servitude to Thee, illumine my brow with the light of adoration in Thy court of holiness, and of prayer to Thy kingdom of grandeur. Help me to be selfless at the heavenly entrance of Thy gate, and aid me to be detached from all things within Thy holy precincts.” -Abdu’l-Baha

  1. Wow, was that folk, jazz or gospel? Or all of the above? Deceptively simple with that beautiful small guitar accompaniment, but with all the change ups and harmonies, it was also sophisticated and mesmerizing. Loved it!
