“I Riu i Pavdekshëm” is the ninth song from the European Baha’i Choral Festival that was held from May 29 – June 2, 2019 at the Baha’i House of Worship in Langenhain, Germany. This Albanian song was composed and conducted by Pierre Weber. The song is based on a prayer revealed by the Bab.
Here are the words to the song:
“Për Perëndinë! Ky është ai i Ri, bukuria e të Cilit është dëshira e zjarrtë e Tubimit qiellor. Ngazëllehuni! Ky është i Riu i pavdekshëm, i ardhur me një kauzë të fuqishme.”
Here is a translation of the words sung:
“By God! This is that Youth Whose beauty is the ardent desire of the celestial Concourse. Rejoice! This is the immortal Youth, come with a mighty cause.”
