The Fast

  • 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.

“O Companion of My Throne” by Aubrey George

November 29, 2023, 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 Edinburgh, in the United Kingdom with Aubrey George who sings “O Companion of My Throne” based on the Writings of Baha’u’llah. 

This song was filmed and recorded in Edinburgh, in the United Kingdom in April 2023.

LYRICS/QUOTE:

O COMPANION OF MY THRONE!

Hear no evil, and see no evil, abase not thyself, neither sigh and weep. Speak no evil, that thou mayest not hear it spoken unto thee, and magnify not the faults of others that thine own faults may not appear great; and wish not the abasement of anyone, that thine own abasement be not exposed. Live then the days of thy life, that are less than a fleeting moment, with thy mind stainless, thy heart unsullied, thy thoughts pure, and thy nature sanctified, so that, free and content, thou mayest put away this mortal frame, and repair unto the mystic paradise and abide in the eternal kingdom forevermore.

CHORDS:

C                  G                           D                                          Am
Hear no evil, and see no evil, abase not thyself, neither sigh and weep.

C                    G                                     D                               Am
Speak no evil, that thou mayest not hear it spoken unto thee,

        Em                                      C      D                                                                 G7            
and magnify not the faults of others that thine own faults may not appear great;

Em                                                  C           D                                                          G7
and wish not the abasement of anyone, that thine own abasement be not exposed.

C                      G                 F    C                                G           F    Csus4
Live then the days of thy life, that are less than a fleeting moment,

C                                                                          G                    A
with thy mind stainless, thy heart unsullied, thy thoughts pure, 

                           D                               D7                C                                      G D
and thy nature sanctified, so that, free and content, thou mayest put away 

                                           G                                        Eflat
this mortal frame, and repair unto the mystic paradise 

          G                                Eflat             G                                 
and abide in the eternal kingdom for evermore. 

         Eflat                      A
O Companion Of My Throne!

                                    G C Csus4
O Companion Of My Throne!
