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 Paris, France with Morgane Delezir and Samy Parak who sing “Quand germe une pensée de guerre (When a Thought of War Comes)” in French, from the Writings of Abdu’l-Baha and Baha’u’llah.

This song was filmed and recorded in Paris, France, December 2017.

Lyrics & Quotes

FRENCH

Quand germe une pensée de guerre, opposez-lui une plus forte pensée de paix. Une pensée de haine doit être neutralisée par une plus puissante pensée d’amour.

Abdu’l-Baha

Ne vous contentez pas de manifester votre amitié par des paroles, mais que votre coeur brûle d’amour pour tous ceux que vos croisez sur votre route.

Baha’u’llah

ENGLISH

When a thought of war comes, oppose it by a stronger thought of peace. A thought of hatred must be destroyed by a more powerful thought of love.

Abdu’l-Baha

Do not be content with showing friendship in words alone, let your heart burn with loving kindness for all who may cross your path.

Baha’u’llah
