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 Toowoomba, Australia with Natasha Chiang singing “精神品德 (Spiritual Qualities)” from a prayer by Abdu’l-Baha.

This song was filmed and recorded in Toowoomba, Australia on 23 February 2020.

Lyrics & Quote

CHINESE

上帝啊!望你振興而暢快我的精神,淨化我的心田,啟發我的智能。我託付所有我的事情在你的手中。你是我的響導,我的庇護。我將不再憂愁悲傷,而會做一個快樂歡爽的真人。上帝啊!我將不再滿懷焦慮,也不會讓什麼困難來煩擾我。人生不愉快的事情,我將不會記在心上。上帝啊!你對我,比我對自己更為親善。主啊!我立志為你獻身盡瘁。

阿博都巴哈

ENGLISH

O God! Refresh and gladden my spirit. Purify my heart. Illumine my powers. I lay all my affairs in Thy hand. Thou art my Guide and my Refuge. I will no longer be sorrowful and grieved; I will be a happy and joyful being. O God! I will no longer be full of anxiety, nor will I let trouble harass me. I will not dwell on the unpleasant things of life.
O God! Thou art more friend to me than I am to myself. I dedicate myself to Thee, O Lord.

Abdu’l-Baha
