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 the United Kingdom with the friends in Bristol who sing “Thy Presence” from the Writings of Baha’u’llah.
You can also listen to and download the audio version of this song from Baha’i Blog’s Soundcloud page here:
This song was filmed and recorded in Bristol, UK, May 2018.
Here is the quotation used for the lyrics below followed by the chords and lyrics:
“O Thou Who art the Lord of all names and the Maker of the heavens! I beseech Thee by them Who are the Daysprings of Thine invisible Essence, the Most Exalted, the All-Glorious, to make of my prayer a fire that will burn away the veils which have shut me out from Thy beauty, and a light that will lead me unto the ocean of Thy Presence.”
Repeat: Am Em
I beseech Thee to make my prayer a fire that will burn away the veils that have shut me out from Thy beauty. And the light that will lead me to the Ocean of Thy Presence. Allah-u-Abha
