“Repair for Refuge” by Bea & Arthur Jouy

June 26, 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 Paris, France with Bea and Arthur Jouy singing “Repair for Refuge” from a prayer by the Bab.

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

Lyrics & Quote

O Lord! Unto Thee I repair for refuge, and toward all Thy signs I set my heart.
O Lord! Whether traveling or at home, and in my occupation or in my work, I place my whole trust in Thee.
Grant me then Thy sufficing help so as to make me independent of all things, O Thou Who art unsurpassed in Thy mercy!
Bestow upon me my portion, O Lord, as Thou pleasest, and cause me to be satisfied with whatsoever Thou hast ordained for me.
Thine is the absolute authority to command.

The Bab

*PLEASE NOTE: The quote reads:

“O Lord! Whether traveling or at home, and in my occupation or in my work, I place my whole trust in Thee.”

However, what is sung is:

“O Lord! Whether traveling or at home, and in my work or in my occupation, I place my whole trust in Thee.”
