“My Name is Abdu’l-Baha” by the South African Baha’i Choir

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 Mahikeng, South Africa with the South African Baha’i Choir singing “My Name is Abdu’l-Baha”, a cover of the Baha’i Blog Studio Sessions song called “Abdu’l-Baha” by Dominique Sylvester.

This song was filmed and recorded in Mahikeng, South Africa, November, 2021.

LYRICS/QUOTE:

“My name is Abdul-Baha, my identity is Abdul-Baha, my qualification is Abdul-Baha, my reality is Abdul-Baha, my praise is Abdul-Baha. Thraldom to the Blessed Perfection is my glorious and refulgent diadem; and servitude to all the human race is my perpetual religion. …No name, no title, no mention, no commendation hath he nor will ever have except Abdul-Baha. This is my longing. This is my supreme apex. This is my greatest yearning. This is my eternal life. This is my everlasting glory!”
-Abdu’l-Baha
