I adjure Thee – Safaa Hansen

September 20, 2015, in Music > Community, by

This music video came about because Safaa Hansen, who lives in Austin, Texas, and who composed the song, has been singing this song a lot in the community – and everybody loved it – so filmmaker Neal Werle decided to sit Saffa down to film and record the song.

In this music video, Safaa Hansen sings a song based on the Writings of the Bab

Lyrics & Quote

I adjure Thee by Thy might, O my God! Let no harm beset me in times of tests, and in moments of heedlessness guide my steps aright through Thine inspiration. Thou art God, potent art Thou to do what Thou desirest. No one can withstand Thy Will or thwart Thy Purpose.

Nayson. Are you able to get the videos on this site to support pasting into 4K Downloader? I use that app to embed videos into Feast and other Baha’i PP for ZOOM presentations.
Thanks,
Sally
