“If Thou Lovest Me” by Matt McGrath

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 Bristol, United Kingdom with Matt McGrath singing “If Thou Lovest Me” based on the Writings of Baha’u’llah.

This song was filmed and recorded in Bristol, United Kingdom, May 2018.

Here is the quote used for the lyrics, followed by the lyrics and chords:
