“The Balance” by Juliet & Amelia Rasekhy

March 29, 2017, in Music > Studio Session, by

Baha’i Blog’s “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 San Francisco, USA, with sisters Juliet and Amelia Rasekhy singing “The Balance” based on the Words of Abdu’l-Baha.

This song was filmed and recorded in San Francisco, USA, February 2017.

Lyrics & Quote

And now I give you a commandment which shall be for a covenant between you and Me – that ye have faith; that your faith be steadfast as a rock that no storms can move, that nothing can disturb, and that it endure through all things even to the end; even should ye hear that your Lord has been crucified, be not shaken in your faith; for I am with you always, whether living or dead, I am with you to the end. As ye have faith so shall your powers and blessings be. This is the balance – this is the balance – this is the balance.
