Abdu’l-Baha – Music Inspired by the Heroes Teaching Conference

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 and chords for this song:
