Martyrdom of the Bab

  • On July 9th 1850, the Bab, the forerunner to Baha’u’llah, was executed in Tabriz, Persia by a firing squad of 750 men. The Bab, which means “the Gate” in Arabic, was a Messenger of God whose role was to herald the coming of the latest Manifestation of God: Baha’u’llah.

“Love Me” by Eswatini Bahai Choir

May 16, 2021, 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 Manzini, Eswatini with the Eswatini Baha’i Choir singing “Love Me” from the Writings of Baha’u’llah.

This song was filmed and recorded in Manzini, Eswatini, December 2018.

The Lyrics of this song are taken from the following Writings of Baha’u’llah:

O SON OF BEING! Love Me, that I may love thee. If thou lovest Me not, My love can in no wise reach thee. Know this, O servant.

Baha’u’llah

O SON OF MAN! I loved thy creation, hence I created thee. Wherefore, do thou love Me, that I may name thy name and fill thy soul with the spirit of life.

Baha’u’llah

Lyrics

Love Me, that I may love thee. If thou lovest Me not, My love can in no wise reach thee. Know this, O servant.
(Love me, love me)
I give my life to Thee, O my God
I fill thy soul with the spirit of life
I loved thy creation, hence I created thee. Wherefore, do thou love Me, that I may name thy name
I give my life to Thee, O my God
I fill thy soul with the spirit of life
I give my life to Thee

Chords

D, G, D, A
