“Ojalá (O that I could travel)” by Lydia & Eduardo

November 16, 2020, 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 Santiago, Chile with Lydia Mills and Eduardo Rioseco singing “Ojalá (O that I could travel)” based on the Writings of Abdu’l-Baha.

This song was filmed and recorded in Santiago, Chile on 26 May, 2019, and music was composed by Carlo Signori.

Lyrics & Quote

SPANISH

Ojalá pudiera viajar, aunque fuese a pie y en la mayor pobreza, a esas regiones, y elevando el llamamiento de «¡Yá Bahá’u’l-Abhá!» en las ciudades, pueblos, montañas, desiertos y océanos, promover las enseñanzas divinas. Lástima, no puedo hacerlo. Cuán intensamente lo deploro. Quiera Dios que vosotros lo logréis.

Abdu’l-Baha

ENGLISH

O that I could travel, even though on foot and in the utmost poverty, to these regions, and, raising the call of “Ya Baha’u’l-Abha” in cities, villages, mountains, deserts and oceans, promote the divine teachings! This, alas, I cannot do. How intensely I deplore it! Please God, ye may achieve it.

Abdu’l-Baha
