“La Plume du Très-Haut (The Pen of the Most High)” by Gus, Emma & Edelo

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 Paita, New Caledonia with Gustave (Gus) and Emma Wayenece, and Edelo Waengene who sing “La Plume du Très-Haut (The Pen of the Most High)” in French, from the Writings of Baha’u’llah.

This song was filmed and recorded in Paita, New Caledonia, October 2017.

Here is the quotation used for the lyrics below followed by the chords and English translation:

“La plume du Très-Haut a décrété pour chacun l’obligation d’enseigner cette cause…Dieu, sans aucun doute, inspirera quiconque se détachera de tout ce qui n’est pas Lui, et Il fera jaillir à flots de son coeur l’eau pure des sages paroles.” -Baha’u’llah

“The Pen of the Most High hath decreed and imposed upon every one the obligation to teach this Cause.… God will, no doubt, inspire whosoever detacheth himself from all else but Him, and will cause the pure waters of wisdom and utterance to gush out and flow copiously from his heart.”

Randomly bursting into song is a daily occurrence for Jordan, something which his friends find both hilarious and terrifying, however, for their own survival, they have grown accustomed to acts of randomness.

He is now studying Media in Melbourne Australia, and singing for his classmates. (he really does not sing that much)
