“This Thy Servant” by Alina Gershuny-Jadduroy

Baha’i Blog’s “Studio Sessions” is an initiative where we invite Baha’is 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, Alina Gershuny-Jadduroy sings “This Thy Servant” based on the Writings of Abdu’l-Baha.

This song was filmed and recorded in Toronto, Canada, August 2015.

Here is the quotation used for the lyrics below:

“O my God! O my God! This, Thy servant, hath advanced towards Thee, is passionately wandering in the desert of Thy love, walking in the path of Thy service, anticipating Thy favors, hoping for Thy bounty, relying upon Thy kingdom, and intoxicated by the wine of Thy gift. O my God! Increase the fervor of his affection for Thee, the constancy of his praise of Thee, and the ardor of his love for Thee. Verily, Thou art the Most Generous, the Lord of grace abounding. There is no other God but Thee, the Forgiving, the Merciful.”
-Abdu’l-Baha
