“Doa Penyaup (Assistance Prayer)” by Verona & Leroy

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 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with Verona Sebastian Lebang and Leroy Oddy Teo singing “Doa Penyaup (Assistance Prayer)” in Iban, based on a prayer by the Bab.

This song was filmed and recorded in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, September 2019.

Here is the quotation used for the lyrics in Iban, followed by the English translation and chords:

IBAN:

“Sebut Petara cukup ke semua utai, Ngelui ari semua utai, lalu nadai utai Dalam semua serega tauka dalam dunya Tang Petara meh ti cukup. Amat bendar Iya, bak Iya empu, Ti nemu, ti ngenan, ti pemadu berkuasa.”
-Bab

ENGLISH:

“Say: God sufficeth all things above all things, and nothing in the heavens or in the earth but God sufficeth. Verily, He is in Himself the Knower, the Sustainer, the Omnipotent.”
-The Bab
