“Burst Thy Cage” by Vaimoana & Felipe

September 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 Santiago, Chile with Vaimoana Heyman and Felipe Duhart singing “Burst Thy Cage” based on the Writings of Baha’u’llah.

This song was filmed and recorded in Santiago, Chile on 26 May, 2019, and the music was composed by Katrinka Heyman.

Lyrics & Quote

O SON OF SPIRIT! Burst thy cage asunder, and even as the phoenix of love soar into the firmament of holiness. Renounce thyself and, filled with the spirit of mercy, abide in the realm of celestial sanctity.
