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 Bristol, United Kingdom with Daniel Stollar who sings “Broken Winged Bird” 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 Bristol, United Kingdom, May 2018.
Here is the quotation used for the lyrics below, followed by the chords and a link to the tab:
“O God! O God! This is a broken-winged bird and his flight is very slow—assist him so that he may fly toward the apex of prosperity and salvation, wing his way with the utmost joy and happiness throughout the illimitable space, raise his melody in Thy Supreme Name in all the regions, exhilarate the ears with this call, and brighten the eyes by beholding the signs of guidance.”
Song is a fingerstyle combination of: E, A, B, C#m
