“Celestial Preserver” by Marie Celeste Kennedy

December 13, 2017, 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 Vancouver, Canada with Marie Celeste Kennedy who sings “Celestial Preserver” based on a prayer by Abdu’l-Baha.

This song was filmed and recorded in Vancouver, Canada, January 2017.

Lyrics & Quote

O Thou divine Providence, preserve and protect us! O Thou Who art our Shield, save us and defend us! Keep us beneath Thy Shelter, and by Thy Help save us from all ills. Thou art, indeed, the True Protector, the Unseen Guardian, the Celestial Preserver, and the Heavenly Loving Lord.

Abdu’l-Baha

Randomly bursting into song is a daily occurrence for Jordan, something which his friends find both hilarious and terrifying, however, for their own survival, they have grown accustomed to acts of randomness. Growing up in both the Czech Republic and Australia, and looking like he’s from neither, Jordan took to creating Youtube videos from a young age, the intention of his content is to make people happy and hopefully spread some positivity juice. He is now studying Media in Melbourne Australia, and singing for his classmates. (he really does not sing that much)

Im Moment studierte ich das wunderbare, ewige Bündnis Gottes. Aber diese Errettung, dieses Beschützen,hat Bedingungen. Ich hoffte von ganzem Herzen, dass in allen Religionen- das ewige Bündnis Gottes und SEINE Bedingungen in allen Kirchen und Tempel nicht nur besungen werden, sondern auch ihre hohen Bedingungen – den Gläubigen – sehr bewusst ist. Sonst haben die Melodien wenig SINN, so schön sie auch sein mögen. Tschüssli zäme

Verzeihung. Die Schreibfehler sind nicht von mir. Sie sind der schlechten Übersetzung von englischen ins Deutsch geschuldet. Ich habe es in Deutscher Sprache Fehlerlos geschrieben. Sorry
