June 18, 2023 will mark 40 years since 10 Baha’i women were hanged in Shiraz. Their only ‘crime’ was their refusal to renounce their beliefs in a faith that promotes the principles of gender equality, unity, justice, and truthfulness. This collection highlights Baha’i Blog content relating to the ongoing persecution of Baha’is in Iran.
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 London, United Kingdom with Steph Zahrai who sings “O Son of Love” from the Writings of Baha’u’llah.
This song was filmed and recorded in London, United Kingdom, September 2018.
Lyrics & Quote
O Son of Love! Thou art but one step away from the glorious heights above and from the celestial tree of love. Take thou one pace and with the next advance into the immortal realm and enter the pavilion of eternity. Give ear then to that which hath been revealed by the pen of glory.
Am7, C/G, F/C, C, Am7, C/G, F/C, C
O Son of Love! Thou art but one step away from the glorious heights above and from the celestial
tree of love.
F/C, Am7, C/G, Gadd11, F/C, Am7, C/G, Gadd11
Take thou one pace and with the next advance into the immortal
Muted: F/C, Am7, C/G, Gadd11
Take thou one pace and with the next advance...

Randomly bursting into song is a daily occurrence for Jordan, something which his friends find both hilarious and terrifying, however, for their own survival, they have grown accustomed to acts of randomness. Growing up in both the Czech Republic and Australia, and looking like he’s from neither, Jordan took to creating Youtube videos from a young age, the intention of his content is to make people happy and hopefully spread some positivity juice. He is now studying Media in Melbourne Australia, and singing for his classmates. (he really does not sing that much)
Heartfelt musical rendition of these cosmic Holy Words, Steph! Thanks for this spiritual uplift, folks at Baha’i Blog, aptly disseminated during the Baha’i Fast, when food for the soul is most appreciated.
