Festival: A Song for Naw-Ruz by Ramine Yazhari

This song by Ramine Yazhari puts to music excerpts of a prayer revealed by Baha’u’llah in honor of Naw-Ruz, the festival of the Baha’i new year.

Here are the lyrics to the song:

Praised be Thou, O my God, that Thou hast ordained Naw-Ruz as a festival unto those who have observed the fast for love of Thee […] make them to be occupied with Thy praise and with remembrance of Thee. […] ‘Praiseworthy art Thou in Thy works’ […] ‘Obeyed art Thou in Thy behest’ […] Make known this Thy station, O my God…

– Baha’u’llah (Gleanings from the Writings of Baha’u’llah)
