January 8, 2022, 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 Mahikeng, South Africa with the the Mahikeng Baha’i Choir singing “Be Thou Ever Hopeful” in English, Swahili and Zulu.

This song was filmed and recorded in Mahikeng, South Africa, November, 2021.

Lyrics

Never lose thy trust in God
Be thou ever hopeful
For the bounties of God never
Never cease to flow upon man.

(Swahili)
Kwame usipotez’ imani yako kwa Mungu x2
Kuwa mwenye tumayini kilawakati x2
Kwa maana fadhili zaMungu azitokoma kutiririka kwamonadamu x2

Be thou ever Hopeful x4

(Zulu)
Ungalilahli ithemba lakho kuNkulunkulu
Hlala une thema lokuthu amagugu kaNkulunkulu
akaqedi ukugeleza phezu komuntu x2
Phezu komuntu x4

Be thou ever Hopeful x4.

Chords

Capo 3
Repeat: C, D
