- 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, we’re in Paris, France with Mathilde who sings “La paix” from the Writings of Baha’u’llah in French.
This song was filmed and recorded in Paris, France, December 2017.
Lyrics & Quote
Ô mon frère, allume la flamme de l’esprit dans la lampe des coeurs, brûlant l’huile de la sagesse, à l’abri du globe de l’intelligence, afin que le vent de l’infidélité ne puisse l’éteindre ni en diminuer la brillance. Ainsi avons-nous éclairé le ciel de la Parole par les splendeurs du soleil de la sagesse et de la compréhension divines, afin que ton coeur trouve la paix et que tu sois de ceux qui s’envolent sur les ailes de la certitude dans l’atmosphère d’amour de leur Seigneur, le Miséricordieux.Baha’u’llah
… O brother! kindle with the oil of wisdom the lamp of the spirit within the innermost chamber of thy heart, and guard it with the globe of understanding, that the breath of the infidel may extinguish not its flame nor dim its brightness. Thus have We illuminated the heavens of utterance with the splendours of the Sun of divine wisdom and understanding, that thy heart may find peace, that thou mayest be of those who, on the wings of certitude, have soared unto the heaven of the love of their Lord, the All-Merciful.Baha’u’llah
