- Abdu’l-Baha was the eldest son of Baha’u’llah. When Abdu’l-Baha passed away on 28 November 1921, He was eulogized as One who led humanity to the “Way of Truth,” as a “pillar of peace” and the embodiment of “glory and greatness.”
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 Toronto, Canada with Michael Ferguson and Laura Friedmann singing “Radiant Heart” from the Writings of Baha’u’llah.
This song was filmed and recorded in Toronto, Canada, in December 2017.
Here are the quotes used for the lyrics followed by the chords:
Lyrics & Quote
“O SON OF SPIRIT! My first counsel is this: Possess a pure, kindly and radiant heart, that thine may be a sovereignty ancient, imperishable and everlasting.”– Baha’u’llah
“O SON OF BEING! Love Me, that I may love thee. If thou lovest Me not, My love can in no wise reach thee. Know this, O servant.”– Baha’u’llah
* Please note that this version of the song contains a slight variation from the original quotation:
Possess a pure, kindly and radiant heart, that thine may be a sovereignty ancient, imperishable and everlasting. Love Me that I may love thee. If thou lovest Me not My love can in no wise reach… [your] imperishable and everlasting [heart.]
Verse: E B C#m A E B C#m A B B/C C#m B A B E Bridge: C#m B A F#m G# A B E
