October 19, 2021, 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 Willikies in Antigua and Barbuda with Katie Eckert, Deborah Eckert and Ali Youssefi singing “Blessed” from the Writings of Baha’u’llah.

This song was filmed and recorded in Willikies in Antigua and Barbuda, on March 28th, 2021, and was composed by Michele Gaston.

Here is the quote used for the lyrics followed by the quote and chords:

Lyrics & Quote

Blessed is the spot, and the house,
and the place, and the city,
and the heart, and the mountain,
and the refuge, and the cave,
and the valley, and the land,
and the sea, and the island,
and the meadow where mention
of God hath been made,
and His praise glorified.

Baha’u’llah
