“New Prosperity (新富贵)” by Nabil David Huening

May 31, 2016, in Music > Studio Session, by

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

ENGLISH

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.

CHINESE

人之子啊
富贵临门,不必欢喜
屈辱加身,切勿哀戚
盖二者皆过眼云烟
转瞬即逝

Chords
