“Shine Ye” by Devina & Raneesha Saberi

July 27, 2015, 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 share the Baha’i Writings put to music.

In this Baha’i Blog Studio Session, sisters Devina and Raneesha Saberi sing “Shine Ye”, based on an excerpt from a tablet by Abdu’l-Baha.

This song was filmed and recorded at Louie Shelton’s home studio in The Gold Coast, Australia, July 2015.

Lyrics & Quote

Shine ye like unto the sun and roar and move like unto the sea; impart life to mountain and desert like unto clouds, and similar to the vernal breeze, bestow freshness, grace and elegance on the trees of human temples.

Abdu’l-Baha

Shine ye like unto the sun
and roar and move like unto the sea
Shine ye like unto the sun
and roar and move like unto the sea
The sea, the sea,
the sea

Impart life to mountain
and desert like unto clouds,
and similar to the vernal breeze, bestow
freshness, grace and elegance

Bestow freshness, grace and elegance on the

Bestow freshness
on the trees of human temples

Shine ye like unto the sun
and roar and move like unto the sea
Shine ye like unto the sun
and roar and move like unto the sea
