“Remover of Every Anguish” by Gloria Akhterjahan

October 1, 2021, in Music > Studio Session, by

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 Hamilton, New Zealand with Gloria Akhterjahan singing “Remover of Every Anguish” based on a prayer by the Bab.

This song was filmed and recorded in Hamilton, New Zealand, 21 February 2021, and was composed by Gloria Akhterjahan.

Lyrics & Quote

O Lord! Thou art the Remover of every anguish and the Dispeller of every affliction. Thou art He Who banisheth every sorrow and setteth free every slave, the Redeemer of every soul. O Lord! Grant deliverance through Thy mercy, and reckon me among such servants of Thine as have gained salvation.
