“Everlasting Beauty” by Erik

September 26, 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 Prince Edward Island, Canada with Erik Peterson singing “Everlasting Beauty” based on the Writings of Baha’u’llah.

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

Lyrics & Quote

O SON OF DESIRE! Give ear unto this: Never shall mortal eye recognize the everlasting Beauty, nor the lifeless heart delight in aught but in the withered bloom. For like seeketh like, and taketh pleasure in the company of its kind.
