- 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, Nabil David Huening sings “New Prosperity (新富贵)”, a song in both English and Chinese based on a Hidden Word of Baha’u’llah.
This song was filmed and recorded in Los Angeles, USA, in May 2016.
Below is the quotation in both English and Chinese used for the lyrics followed by the quotation and chords:
Lyrics & Quote
O SON OF MAN! Should prosperity befall thee, rejoice not, and should abasement come upon thee, grieve not, for both shall pass away and be no more.Baha’u’llah
Capo on the second fret G, D, F, C
