- Abdu’l-Baha was the eldest son of Baha’u’llah. When Abdu’l-Baha passed away on 28 November 1921, He was eulogized as One who led humanity to the “Way of Truth,” as a “pillar of peace” and the embodiment of “glory and greatness.”
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 Stockholm, Sweden with The Friends in Stockholm who sings “O ni uppriktiga (O Ye Sincere Ones)” in Swedish and English, based on the Writings of Abdu’l-Baha.
This song was filmed and recorded in Stockholm, Sweden, October 2018.
Lyrics & Quote
O ni uppriktiga, ni som längtar, ni som är dragna som av en magnet, ni som har rest er för att tjäna Guds sak, för att upphöja Hans ord och sprida Hans ljuva väldofter vitt och brett! Jag har läst ert utmärkta brev, vackert till stilen, vältaligt till orden, djupt till betydelsen och jag prisade Gud och tackade Honom för att ha kommit till er hjälp och gjort er i stånd att tjäna Honom i Hans vidsträckta vingård.Abdu’l-Baha
O ye sincere ones, ye longing ones, ye who are drawn as if magnetized, ye who have risen up to serve the Cause of God, to exalt His Word and scatter His sweet savours far and wide! I have read your excellent letter, beautiful as to style, eloquent as to words, profound as to meaning, and I praised God and thanked Him for having come to your aid and enabled you to serve Him in His widespreading vineyard.Abdu’l-Baha
Repeat: G D Am C
