“Follow in the Footsteps” by Camila & Friends

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 Seattle, USA with Camila and Friends singing “Follow in the Footsteps” based on the Writings of Abdu’l-Baha.

This song was filmed and recorded in Seattle, USA, August 2019, and the participants are Olivia Rahbin, Shay Morris-Doty, Ai Ana Richmond, Saba Najafi, Camila Matamala-Ost, Rob Domos, Yosi Mesbah, Aaron Ferguson, Sina Najafi, Nikka Malakooti, Samin Bahizad, and Ben Spriggs.

Here is the quotation used for the lyrics below:

“Follow in the footsteps of Abdu’l-Baha, and in the pathway of the Abha Beauty, long at every moment to give up your lives. Shine out like the day-star, be unresting as the sea; even as the clouds of heaven, shed ye life upon field and hill, and like unto April winds, blow freshness through those human trees, and bring them to their blossoming.”
