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 London, in the United Kingdom with Danny Djalili who sings “Infinite Bestowals” based on a prayer by Abdu’l-Baha.
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 London, in the United Kingdom, September 2018.
Here is the quotation used for the lyrics below followed by the quotation and chords:
“O Lord! Grant Thine infinite bestowals, and let the light of Thy guidance shine. Illumine the eyes, gladden the hearts with abiding joy. Confer a new spirit upon all people and bestow upon them eternal life. Unlock the gates of true understanding and let the light of faith shine resplendent. Gather all people beneath the shadow of Thy bounty and cause them to unite in harmony, so that they may become as the rays of one sun, as the waves of one ocean, and as the fruit of one tree.”
O Lord! O Lord! Grant Thine, grant Thine
Amaj7, C, Bmin7, Am7
and let the light of Thy guidance shine
Illumine the eyes, gladden the hearts,
Em, A, Em, A
unlock the gates of true understanding.
Gather all the people beneath the shadow
of Thy bounty and cause them to unite
