Ridvan celebrates Baha’u’llah’s time in the garden of Ridvan where He publicly declared His station as a Manifestation of God. The Ridvan Festival is 12 days long and is also the time of year where Baha’is elect their governing bodies.
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 Helsinki, Finland with Mitra Matouf who sings “Nimesi on parannukseni” from the Writings of Baha’u’llah.
This song was filmed and recorded in Helsinki, Finland, November 2016.
Lyrics & Quote
Nimesi on parannukseni, oi Jumalani, ja muistamisesi lääkkeeni. Olla Sinua lähellä on toiveeni, ja rakkaus Sinuun on kumppanini. Laupeutesi minua kohtaan on parannukseni ja apuni sekä tässä että tulevassa maailmassa. Sinä totisesti olet Kaikkiantelias, Kaikkitietävä, Kaikkiviisas.
Thy name is my healing, O my God, and remembrance of Thee is my remedy. Nearness to Thee is my hope, and love for Thee is my companion. Thy mercy to me is my healing and my succor in both this world and the world to come. Thou, verily, art the All-Bountiful, the All-Knowing, the All-Wise.

In her innermost heart, Sonjel is a stay-at-home parent and a bookworm with a maxed out library card but professionally she is a museologist with a background in English Literature. She currently lives on Prince Edward Island, an isle in the shape of a smile on the eastern Canadian coast. Sonjel is a writer who loves to listen to jazz when she's driving at night.
This is so beautiful! Thank you!
