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 in Johannesburg, South Africa with Taraz Rawhani, Nthabiseng Mafoko-Matabane and Page Masuku who sing “Hlobisa” in Zulu, 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 Johannesburg, South Africa, September 2017.
Here is the quotation used for the lyrics below followed by the quotation and chords:
“O Nkulunkulu, Nkulunkulu wami! Hlobisa ikhanda lami ngomqhele, wobulingisa nenhlafuno yami ngemvunulo yobuqotho. Wena, ngeqiniso unguMnini wazo zonke izipho namasasasa.”
Translation into English from Zulu:
“O God, my God! Attire mine head with the crown of justice, and my temple with the ornament of equity. Thou, verily, art the Possessor of all gifts and bounties.”
Repeat: C F Gadd4 F
