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 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with Qurratul Ayn Isau, Ruhiyyih Charlie and Verona Sebastian Lebang who sings “O Anak Pengidup (With Fire We Test the Gold)” in Iban, from the Writings of Baha’u’llah.
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 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, September 2019.
Here is the quotation used for the lyrics in Iban, followed by the English translation and chords:
“O Anak Pengidup Anang Ngiruh Diri Empu Enggau Dunia Tu Laban Ngena Api Kami Nuji Emas Lalu Ngena Emas Kami Uji Ati Nembiak Kami”
“O SON OF BEING! Busy not thyself with this world, for with fire We test the gold, and with gold We test Our servants.”
O Anak Penghidup

C, D, G, Em
