“Broken Winged Bird” by Carmel Zein

July 12, 2016, 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 Sydney, Australia with Carmel Zein singing “Broken Winged Bird”, based on a prayer from Abdu’l-Baha. 

Lyrics & Quote

O God! O God! This is a broken-winged bird and his flight is very slow—assist him so that he may fly toward the apex of prosperity and salvation, wing his way with the utmost joy and happiness throughout the illimitable space, raise his melody in Thy Supreme Name in all the regions, exhilarate the ears with this call, and brighten the eyes by beholding the signs of guidance.

O Lord! I am single, alone and lowly. For me there is no support save Thee, no helper except Thee and no sustainer beside Thee. Confirm me in Thy service, assist me with the cohorts of Thy angels…

This song was filmed and recorded in Sydney, Australia 2014.

You can also listen and download the audio version of this song from Baha’i Blog’s Soundcloud page:
