April 22, 2020, 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 Toowoomba, Australia with Klare Kuolga singing “Blessed is the Spot” from the Writings of Baha’u’llah.

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

Here is the quotation used for the lyrics followed by the chords below:

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

I love this song. It is so heart felt. I just play it over and over. Thanks for this gift. I don’t think I’ve actually ever listened to the words of the prayer as deeply that I did today and I have been a Baha’i for 45 years.
