- Baha’is abstain from food and drink between sunrise and sunset for 19 days. While this abstention from food and drink is a test of one’s will and discipline, the Fast is not just about abstaining from food. The Fast is, primarily, a spiritual practice.
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 Stockholm, Sweden with Ann-Sofie Wensbo and Rasmus Blomqvist who sing “Free Thyself” from the Writings of Baha’u’llah.
This song was filmed and recorded in Stockholm, Sweden, October 2018.
Music composed by Rasmus Blomqvist.
Here is the quotation used for the lyrics and the chords below:
