“Help me to Triumph” by Sasha, Saeon & Sam

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 San Francisco, USA, with Sasha Bayan, Seaon Shin, and Sam Suggs performing “Help me to Triumph” based on a prayer by Abdu’l-Baha.

This song was filmed and recorded in San Francisco, USA, February 2017.

QUOTE/LYRICS:

“…help me to triumph by the hosts of Thy glorious kingdom, and shower upon me Thy confirmations, which alone can change a gnat into an eagle, a drop of water into rivers and seas, and an atom into lights and suns…”
