“Eternal Truth” by Turning Point

August 3, 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 Port Vila, Vanuatu with Turning Point, who sing “Eternal Truth”.

This song was filmed and recorded in Port Vila, Vanuatu, July 2018.

Lyrics are based on excerpts taken from the Writings of Baha’u’llah, Abdu’l-Baha and the book ‘Baha’u’llah and the New Era’ by Dr. John E. Esslemon.

Below are the excerpts used for the lyrics, followed by the lyrics and chords.

Lyrics & Quotes

Eternal Truth, beareth Me witness!
Open ye your eyes, and consider His clear evidence…
This is the Day on which all eyes shall stare up with terror, the Day in which the hearts of them that dwell on earth shall tremble…
Remove from our eyes the veil of sinfulness…
Turn your…faces…towards…the beauty….

(Gleanings from the Writings of Baha’u’llah)

…illumine the darkened minds of men and awaken their dormant souls….

(Baha’u’llah and the New Era)

Be not grieved if thou…walk in the ways of their idle fancy…
Not for a moment … complete … concerns … dictates …whatever they had seen…
…no earthly water can quench the flames of Divine wisdom…
…believe in … your heart … that ye … possess … the power … to extinguish …
… the radiance of the… sun…
…unrestrained as the wind… steadfast … in this … path …so … that every trace of worldly desire will be washed from thine heart.

(Gleanings from the Writings of Baha’u’llah)

Let your exertions, henceforth, increase a thousandfold

( Abdu’l-Baha, Tablets of the Divine Plan)

Is there any doubt concerning … the Almighty … the All-Merciful … God. Behold how He hath come down from the heaven of His grace, girded with power and…sovereignty. …Is there any doubt concerning His signs.

(Gleanings from the Writings of Baha’u’llah)

Keep him safe also … O my Lord … O my God …

(Baha’u’llah, Prayers and Meditations)
