“Paradise” by Sam Cleasby

December 4, 2018, in Music > Studio Session, by

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 Sam Cleasby who sings “Paradise” from the Writings of Baha’u’llah.

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

Lyrics & Quote

O Companion of My Throne! Hear no evil, and see no evil, abase not thyself, neither sigh and weep. Speak no evil, that thou mayest not hear it spoken unto thee, and magnify not the faults of others that thine own faults may not appear great; and wish not the abasement of anyone, that thine own abasement be not exposed. Live then the days of thy life, that are less than a fleeting moment, with thy mind stainless, thy heart unsullied, thy thoughts pure, and thy nature sanctified, so that, free and content, thou mayest put away this mortal frame, and repair unto the mystic paradise and abide in the eternal kingdom for evermore.

Baha’u’llah

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)

Hi Mel!

Thanks for watching and listening to Baha’i Blog Studio Sessions and thank you for your feedback! One of our aims in creating the Studio Sessions is to showcase a diversity of musical styles and to highlight how differently people express themselves when they put the Writings to music. One of my favourite songs, which you might find livelier, is “Into Thy Hands” by Jose Maria Fierro (http://bahaiblog.net/2018/02/thy-hands-jose-maria-fierro/) Thank you for taking the time to comment and for your feedback!
