- Baha’is believe in the power of prayer and you’ll find Baha’is and their friends, throughout the world, getting together to pray. This is often referred to as a ‘devotional gathering’ or ‘devotional meeting’, and they happen in diverse settings, whether in cities or villages.
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, brothers Denzil and Ephrim Aumua sing “He may Soar” from the Writings of Abdu’l-Baha.
This song was filmed and recorded at Louie Shelton’s home studio in The Gold Coast, Australia, July 2015.
Lyrics & Quote
O Thou kind Lord! Grant that this youth may attain unto that which is the highest aspiration of the holy ones. Endow him with the wings of Thy strengthening grace—wings of detachment and divine aid—that he may soar thereby into the atmosphere of Thy tender mercy, be able to partake of Thy celestial bestowals, may become a sign of divine guidance and a standard of the Concourse on high. Thou art the Potent, the Powerful, the Seeing, the Hearing.Abdu’l-Baha
VERSE: E6, D6/E, D6A, x 3 E6, D6/E, D6A, A/B CHORUS: E6, Ama7, A/B, E6 x 4
