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 Melbourne, Australia with Omid Master singing “Prefer Not Your Will (No Prefieras Vuestra Voluntad)” by Omid Master from the Writings of Baha’u’llah in both English and Spanish.
This song was filmed and recorded in Melbourne, Australia on 5 February, 2019.
Lyrics & Quote
O MY FRIENDS! Have ye forgotten that true and radiant morn, when in those hallowed and blessed surroundings ye were all gathered in My presence beneath the shade of the tree of life, which is planted in the all-glorious paradise? Awe-struck ye listened as I gave utterance to these three most holy words: O friends! Prefer not your will to Mine, never desire that which I have not desired for you, and approach Me not with lifeless hearts, defiled with worldly desires and cravings. Would ye but sanctify your souls, ye would at this present hour recall that place and those surroundings, and the truth of My utterance should be made evident unto all of you.Baha’u’llah
¡Oh amigos! No prefieras vuestra voluntad a la mía, nunca desees lo que no he deseado para vosotrosBaha’u’llah
