The Fast

  • Baha’is abstain from food and drink between sunrise and sunset for 19 days. While this abstention from food and drink is a test of one’s will and discipline, the Fast is not just about abstaining from food. The Fast is, primarily, a spiritual practice.

“一把火焰 (Burn Away)” by Natasha Chiang

January 30, 2024, in Music > Studio Session, by

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 Brisbane, Australia with Natasha Chiang who sings “一把火焰 (Burn Away)” in Mandarin and English based on the Writings of Baha’u’llah. 

This song was filmed and recorded in Brisbane, Australia in August 2023.

LYRICS/QUOTE:

我祈求祢使我的祈禱成為一把火焰,燃燒那使我和祢聖美隔離的帷幕,成為一道光源,引領我至祢尊前的海洋。

Make of my prayer a fire that will burn away the veils which have shut me out from Thy beauty, and a light that will lead me unto the ocean of Thy Presence.

CHORDS:

Am7 E7 Fmaj7 C
