- As a proudly Australian initiative, we’re excited to showcase a collection of Australian stories, music, tributes and more.
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 Helsinki, Finland with Mea Karvonen and Mitra Matouf who sing “The Bright Day is Coming”, based on a prayer by Abdu’l-Baha.
This song was filmed and recorded in Helsinki, Finland, November 2016.
Lyrics & Quote
Have patience; wait; but do not sit idle. Work while you are waiting; smile when you are wearied with monotony; be firm while everything around you is being shaken. Be joyous while the ugly face of despair grins at you […] Continue your journey to the end. The bright day is coming.Abdu’l-Baha
