“Educate These Children” by Erik

July 12, 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 Prince Edward Island, Canada with Erik Peterson who sings “Educate These Children” based on a prayer by Abdu’l-Baha.

This song was filmed and recorded in Prince Edward Island, Canada, March 2017.

Lyrics & Quote

O God! Educate these children. These children are the plants of Thine orchard, the flowers of Thy meadow, the roses of Thy garden. Let Thy rain fall upon them; let the Sun of Reality shine upon them with Thy love. Let Thy breeze refresh them in order that they may be trained, grow and develop, and appear in the utmost beauty. Thou art the Giver. Thou art the Compassionate.

Abdu’l-Baha
