- 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 Marbella, Spain with Mayca Roa and Enrique Sabariego who sing “Mi Dios, mi Adorado (My God, My Adored One)” in Spanish based on the Writings of Baha’u’llah.
This song was filmed and recorded in Marbella, Spain in July 2023.
Mi Dios, mi Adorado, mi Rey, mi Deseo, ninguna lengua puede expresar mis gracias a ti…
Yo era negligente, tu me despertaste, yo me había alejado de ti, pero Tu me ayudaste a volver hacia Ti. Yo era como un muerto, me vivificaste como el agua que nos da vida, solamente por Tu amor a mi. Yo estaba marchito, Tu me reanimaste, con la corriente celestial, de Tu Sagrada Palabra que ha fluido de la Pluma de Dios.
Oh Señor, Tu creaste toda la existencia solamente por Tu munificencia no la prives de las aguas, de Tu generosidad, ni del océano de Tu gran bondad. Te imploro que me ayudes, te imploro que me asistas en todo momento y en toda condición. Y anhelo Tu antiguo favor. Tu eres en verdad, el Señor de gran bondad y el Soberano del reino de la eternidad.
LYRICS/QUOTE IN ENGLISH:
My God, my Adored One, my King, my Desire! What tongue can voice my thanks to Thee? I was heedless, Thou didst awaken me. I had turned back from Thee, Thou didst graciously aid me to turn towards Thee. I was as one dead, Thou didst quicken me with the water of life. I was withered, Thou didst revive me with the heavenly stream of Thine utterance which hath flowed forth from the Pen of the All-Merciful.
O Divine Providence! All existence is begotten by Thy bounty; deprive it not of the waters of Thy generosity, neither do Thou withhold it from the ocean of Thy mercy. I beseech Thee to aid and assist me at all times and under all conditions, and seek from the heaven of Thy grace Thine ancient favor. Thou art, in truth, the Lord of bounty, and the Sovereign of the kingdom of eternity.
Chorus: Am, Em, F, Am, F, G, Em Am, Em, C, Em, Am, F, G, Am. (bis). F, G, C, Em, Am. F, G, C, Em, Am, F, G, Em...
