“Como una Espada (Finely Tempered Sword)” by Arrayanes

October 4, 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 the band Arrayanes singing “Como una Espada (Finely Tempered Sword)” in Spanish, and 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 KC Porter.

Lyrics & Quote

SPANISH

¡Oh Mi Siervo! Eres como una espada de excelente temple oculta en la oscuridad de la vaina y cuyo valor es desconocido para el artífice. Por tanto sal de la vaina del yo y del deseo para que tu valor se haga manifiesto y resplandeciente ante todo el mundo.

Baha’u’llah

ENGLISH

O MY SERVANT! Thou art even as a finely tempered sword concealed in the darkness of its sheath and its value hidden from the artificer’s knowledge. Wherefore come forth from the sheath of self and desire that thy worth may be made resplendent and manifest unto all the world.

Baha’u’llah
