“Mörker omsluter varje land” is the second song from the European Baha’i Choral Festival that was held from May 29 – June 2, 2019 at the Baha’i House of Worship in Langenhain, Germany.

Lyrics & Quote

SWEDISH

Mörker om sluter varje land, o min Gud, och detta kommit de flesta av Dina tjänare att bäva. Jag bönfaller Dig, vid Ditt största namn, att i varje stad uppväcka en skapelse som skall vända sig till Dig, och minnas Dig bland Dina tjänare. Och genom värdet av sitt tal och si visdom skall uppenbara Din segers tecken och göra sig fria från alla ska pa de ting. Mäktig är Du att göra Din vilja, det finns ingen Gud atom Du, den mäktigaste, om var hjälp alla människor bönfaller.

Baha’u’llah

ENGLISH

Darkness hath encompassed every land, O my God, and caused most of Thy servants to tremble. I beseech Thee, by Thy Most Great Name, to raise in every city a new creation that shall turn towards Thee, and shall remember Thee amidst Thy servants, and shall unfurl by virtue of their utterances and wisdom the ensigns of Thy victory, and shall detach themselves from all created things. Potent art Thou to do Thy pleasure. No God is there but Thee, the Most Powerful, He Whose help is implored by all men.

Baha’u’llah
