This song called “Thy Confirmations”, is the ninth 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 is the quote from the Baha’i Writings used for the lyrics of the song:
“Help me to triumph by the hosts of Thy glorious kingdom, and shower upon me Thy confirmations, which alone can change a gnat into an eagle, a drop of water into rivers and seas, and an atom into lights and suns? O my Lord!”
Here are the chords for the song:
Em D/F# G C/G
Help me to triumph by the hosts of Thy glorious,
Thy glorious kingdom and shower upon
me Thy confirmations x 3
Am G/B C
Which alone can change a gnat into an eagle,
Am G/B C
a drop of water into rivers and seas
Am G/B C D
an atom into lights and suns, O my Lord.
