- Baha’is believe in the power of prayer and you’ll find Baha’is and their friends, throughout the world, getting together to pray. This is often referred to as a ‘devotional gathering’ or ‘devotional meeting’, and they happen in diverse settings, whether in cities or villages.
This song shares a passage from the Hidden Words of Baha’u’llah in Hawaiian.
The words sung in Hawaiian, as well as their English translation, are as follows:
E KA MAMO ʻUHANE OLA! ʻO ka mua kēia o kaʻu kuauhā: I maʻemaʻe, i lokomaikaʻi, a i mālamalama ka mauli ou, a nou nō ke ea kahiko, pio ʻole, a mau loa hoʻi.
O SON OF SPIRIT! My first counsel is this: Possess a pure, kindly and radiant heart, that thine may be a sovereignty ancient, imperishable and everlasting.
This melody was composed by Sui Laulani Ritte and Corbin Doak created the music video. More prayers sung in Hawaiian can be found on the YouTube channel called Hawaii Baha’i Studio.
