“Magnified Be Thy Name” by Benjamin Spriggs

This song was filmed and recorded in Seattle, Washington, USA, August 2019.

Here is the quotation used for the lyrics and the lyrics and chords below:

“Magnified be Thy Name, O Lord my God! I am the one who hath turned his face towards Thee and hath placed his whole reliance in Thee. I implore Thee by Thy Name whereby the ocean of Thine utterance hath surged and the breezes of Thy knowledge have stirred, to grant that I may be graciously aided to serve Thy Cause and be inspired to remember Thee and praise Thee. Send down then upon me from the heaven of Thy generosity that which will preserve me from anyone but Thee and will profit me in all Thy worlds.
Verily, Thou art the Powerful, the Inaccessible, the Supreme, the Knowing, the Wise.”
-Baha’u’llah
