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 Jasmine Michel who sings “As a Sea”, based on a prayer by Abdu’l-Baha.
This song was filmed and recorded in Toronto, Canada, October 2016.
Lyrics & Quote
I beg of Thee, O Thou King of existence and Protector of the seen and the unseen, to make whosoever arises to serve Thy Cause as a sea moving by Thy desire, as one ablaze with the fire of Thy Sacred Tree, shining from the horizon of the heaven of Thy will. Verily, Thou art the mighty One, Whom neither the power of all the world nor the strength of the nations can weaken. There is no God but Thee, the One, the Incomparable, the Protector, the Self-Subsistent.Abdu’l-Baha
