“Gott Genügt (God Sufficeth)” by Colin Shoemaker

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 Frankfurt, Germany with Colin Shoemaker who sings “Gott Genügt (God Sufficeth)” in German, from the Writings of the Bab.

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 Frankfurt, Germany, December 2018.

Here is the quotation used for the lyrics in German, followed by the English translation and chords:


“Sprich: Gott genügt allen Dingen über alle Dinge hinaus, und nichts in den Himmeln, auf Erden oder dazwischen kann genügen außer Gott, deinem Herrn. Wahrlich, Er ist der Wissende, der Erhalter, der Allmächtige.”
– The Bab


“Say: God sufficeth all things above all things, and nothing in the heavens or in the earth but God sufficeth. Verily, He is in Himself the Knower, the Sustainer, the Omnipotent.”
– The Bab

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. Growing up in both the Czech Republic and Australia, and looking like he’s from neither, Jordan took to creating Youtube videos from a young age, the intention of his content is to make people happy and hopefully spread some positivity juice. He is now studying Media in Melbourne Australia, and singing for his classmates. (he really does not sing that much)
