“Rejoice” by Maya, Deena & Michael

December 20, 2020, 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 Toronto, Canada with Maya Wong, Deena Sobhani Ghodrati and Michael Ferguson singing “Rejoice” based on the Writings of Baha’u’llah.

This song was filmed and recorded in Toronto, Canada, December 2017.

Lyrics & Quote

…this is a night the like of which hath never been witnessed in the world of creation.
This is the night wherein the Spirit intoned such a melody
This is the night wherein the Mystic Dove raised its call upon the branches and boughs of heaven…
Rejoice, O concourse on high
Rejoice, O denizens of Paradise
Rejoice, O embodiments of sanctity
This is the night wherein the oceans of forgiveness surged and the breezes of providence were wafted abroad.
This is the night wherein every trace of sorrow might be banished forever
This is the night wherein the trespasses of all that dwell on earth were forgiven
Hasten then, O concourse of men, and drink your fill from this stream of everlasting life!
Rejoice, O concourse on high
Rejoice, O denizens of Paradise
Rejoice, O embodiments of sanctity…

Baha’u’llah
