“O Thou Candle” by James Mohajer

April 7, 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 London, United Kingdom with James Mohajer who sings “O Thou Candle” based on a prayer by Abdu’l-Baha.

This song was filmed and recorded in London, United Kingdom, September 2018.

Lyrics & Quote

O thou candle of the Love of God!
I ask God to grant thee by His favor and grace that which is thy utmost desire; that the closed doors become opened, the uneven roads become even, thy face shine by the love of God, thy sight become brighter 130 by witnessing the signs of God; that thou mayest attain spiritual joy, eternal happiness and heavenly life.

Abdu’l-Baha

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)
