This song called “Abdu’l-Baha”, is the first song in a collection of 10 songs called ‘Music Inspired by the Heroes Teaching Conference’.
In April this year, some 1,000 Baha’is and like-minded friends from all over Southern Queensland and Northern New South Wales, Australia, gathered together in the city of Brisbane to attend a historic conference aimed to help its participants find their place in service to Baha’u’llah and humanity.
The conference was called ‘The Heroes Teaching Conference’, and woven throughout the two-day program were beautiful songs performed by conference participants who were inspired by stories of heroism in the Baha’i Faith’s history, and from the spirit generated at the event. Within a few weeks after the conference, these songs were recorded live in a music studio in Brisbane, and we’re so excited to share this wonderful collection of inspiring songs!
Here are the lyrics for this song:
There was a Man from far away
He was the Son of the Greatest Name
He taught us all how to love each other
He showed us all the righteous way
The Perfect, Perfect Example
The Greatest, Servant of all
Abdul’Baha x 4
Like a flame burning in the dark
He lit the way, He showed me the path
Everywhere He went He showed love to all
Attracted the hearts of men to heed His Father’s call
Abdul’Baha x 4
He taught me how to love, He taught me how to teach. He’s everything that I look up to, everything that I need x 4
Abdul’Baha x 8
