“Arise” by Ethan Crofts

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 Hluboka nad Vltavou, in the Czech Republic with Ethan Crofts who sings “Arise” based on the words of the Bab, as quoted in The Dawn-Breakers.

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 Hluboka nad Vltavou, Czech Republic, December 2017.

Here are the quotations used for the lyrics below followed by the quotations and chords:

“… arise, and rest assured that you will be with Me. Tomorrow you shall witness what God has decreed.”

“Rejoice, the hour is approaching when, in this very city, I shall be suspended before the eyes of the multitude and shall fall a victim to the fire of the enemy. I shall choose no one except you to share with Me the cup of martyrdom. Rest assured that this promise which I give you shall be fulfilled.”

“Had you believed in Me, O wayward generation…”

“I Myself will follow you, together with one of My loyal disciples, and will join you in the realm of eternity.”

“O My beloved friends! You are the bearers of the name of God in this Day. You have been chosen as the repositories of His mystery. It behoves each one of you to manifest the attributes of God, and to exemplify by your deeds and words the signs of His righteousness, His power and glory.”

“Heed not your weaknesses and frailty; fix your gaze upon the invincible power of the Lord, your God, the Almighty.”

“Arise in His name, put your trust wholly in Him, and be assured of ultimate victory.”

– The Bab
