“De l’horizon de la montagne sacrée (From the Horizon of the Sacred Mount)” by Marie Cuvillier

Baha’i Blog 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 Paris, France with Marie Cuvillier who sings “De l’horizon de la montagne sacrée (From the Horizon of the Sacred Mount)” based on the Writings of Baha’u’llah.

This song was filmed and recorded in Paris, France, in December 2017.

Here is the quotation used for the lyrics below followed by the English translation and chords:

FRENCH:

“De l’horizon de la montagne sacrée, la lumière a brillé sur toi et, sur le Sinaï de ton coeur, l’esprit de lumière a soufflé. Libère-toi donc des voiles des vaines imaginations et entre dans ma cour pour que tu puisses être prêt pour la vie éternelle et digne de me rencontrer. Alors ne pourront t’atteindre ni la mort, ni la fatigue, ni les tourments.”
-Baha’u’llah

ENGLISH:

“O SON OF MAN! The light hath shone on thee from the horizon of the sacred Mount and the spirit of enlightenment hath breathed in the Sinai of thy heart. Wherefore, free thyself from the veils of idle fancies and enter into My court, that thou mayest be fit for everlasting life and worthy to meet Me. Thus may death not come upon thee, neither weariness nor trouble.”
-Baha’u’llah
