“O Son of Justice” by Emily Price & Van Gilmer

March 5, 2021, 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 Chicago, USA with Emily Price and Van Gilmer singing “O Son of Justice”, based on the Writings of Baha’u’llah.

This song was filmed and recorded in Chicago, USA, December, 2018.

Lyrics & Quote

O SON OF JUSTICE! Whither can a lover go but to the land of his beloved? and what seeker findeth rest away from his heart’s desire? To the true lover reunion is life, and separation is death. His breast is void of patience and his heart hath no peace. A myriad lives he would forsake to hasten to the abode of his beloved.

Baha’u’llah
