- Abdu’l-Baha was the eldest son of Baha’u’llah. When Abdu’l-Baha passed away on 28 November 1921, He was eulogized as One who led humanity to the “Way of Truth,” as a “pillar of peace” and the embodiment of “glory and greatness.”
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 Ellie Imaan Jacobs, Rosemary Mashale & Steve Makola singing “Healing Prayer”, in English and Xhosa, and based on a prayer by Baha’u’llah.
This song was filmed and recorded in Mahikeng, South Africa, November, 2021.
Lyrics / Quote
“Thy name is my healing, O my God, and remembrance of Thee is my remedy. Nearness to Thee is my hope, and love for Thee is my companion. Thy mercy to me is my healing and my succor in both this world and the world to come. Thou, verily, art the All-Bountiful, the All-Knowing, the All-Wise.”– Baha’u’llah
“Igama Lakho likukuphiliswa kwam, O Thixo wam, nokukhumbula Wena kuliyeza lam. Ukusondela Kuwe kulithemba lam, nokuthanda Wena kuliqabane lam. Inceba Yakho kum ikukuphiliswa nokunonelelwa kwam kweli lizwe nakwelizayo. Wena, ngenene UnguSosisa, uSolwazi, uSobulumko.”-Baha’u’llah
