“Free Thyself” by Modison Magagula & Friends [Audio Track]

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 Manzini, Eswatini with Modison Magagula accompanied by Xolani Tsele and Sanele Nhlabatsi, singing “Free Thyself” in Swati and in English, from the Writings of Baha’u’llah.

This song was filmed and recorded in Manzini, Eswatini, December 2018.

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


Tikhulule emaketengeni alomhlaba, ukhulule nemphefumulo wakho kulelijele lebumine. Lisebentise lelifuba lakho, ngoba alisoze labuya kuwe futsi”



“O MY SERVANT! Free thyself from the fetters of this world, and loose thy soul from the prison of self. Seize thy chance, for it will come to thee no more.”


A, G, D
