“El Mérito del Hombre (Man’s Merit)” by Arrayanes

February 14, 2020, 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 “El Mérito del Hombre (Man’s Merit)” in Spanish from the Writings of Baha’u’llah.

This song was filmed and recorded in Santiago, Chile on 26 May, 2019, and music was composed by Eduardo Rioseco.

El mérito del hombre reside en el servicio y la virtud, y no en el fausto de la opulencia y las riquezas.

Baha’u’llah

ENGLISH

Man’s merit lieth in service and virtue and not in the pageantry of wealth and riches.
