November 15, 2020, in Articles > Music, by

Having recently celebrated the fact that we’ve published over 300 Baha’i Blog Studio Sessions around the world so far, we thought it would be great to share a number of Studio Session songs we’ve published based on a short prayer by Abdu’l-Baha which starts with “O God, guide me…”. There are two translated versions of this prayer which we’ve included below, however, the newest version is shown first:

O God, guide me, protect me, make of me a shining lamp and a brilliant star. Thou art the Mighty and the Powerful.

O God, guide me, protect me, illumine the lamp of my heart and make me a brilliant star. Thou art the Mighty and Powerful.

Wonderful collection! Such a great idea to compile different expressions of creativity to one prayer. Here are three more versions of that prayer: https://youtu.be/NC67kekXahA in Spanish and https://youtu.be/E0URGCB7Bmk (which has two different versions back to back).
