In this Baha’i Blog Studio Session, we’re in Washington DC, USA with Sheyda Peyman who sings “Arise” from the Writings of Baha’u’llah.
This song was filmed and recorded in Washington DC, USA, October 2018.
Lyrics & Quote
Arise to aid thy Lord at all times and in all circumstances, and be thou one of His helpers. Admonish, then, the people to lend a hearing ear to the words which the Spirit of God hath uttered in this irradiant and resplendent Tablet. Say: Sow not, O people, the seeds of dissension amongst men, and contend not with your neighbor. Be patient under all conditions, and place your whole trust and confidence in God. Aid ye your Lord with the sword of wisdom and of utterance. This indeed well becometh the station of man. To depart from it would be unworthy of God, the Sovereign Lord of all, the Glorified. The people, however, have been led astray, and are truly of the heedless.Baha’u’llah
