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 Chicago, USA with Emily Price and Van Gilmer singing “O Thou Compassionate Lord”, based on an excerpt from a prayer by Abdu’l-Baha.
This song was filmed and recorded in Chicago, USA, December, 2018.
Here is the quotation used for the lyrics followed by the lyrics and chords below:
“O Thou compassionate Lord, Thou Who art generous and able! We are servants of Thine sheltered beneath Thy providence. Cast Thy glance of favor upon us. Give light to our eyes, hearing to our ears, and understanding and love to our hearts.” -Abdu’l-Baha
