“Sorrow Shall Pass” by Devina & Raneesha Saberi

December 3, 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 come into a studio and share the Baha’i Writings put to music.

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

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

Lyrics & Quote

Be thou not unhappy; the tempest of sorrow shall pass; regret will not last; disappointment will vanish…Associate thou, as much as thou canst, with the relatives and strangers; display thou loving kindness; show thou forth the utmost patience and resignation. The more they oppose thee, shower thou upon them the greater justice and equity; the more they show hatred and opposition toward thee, challenge thou them with great truthfulness, friendship and reconciliation…

Abdu’l-Baha

Chords

Gmaj7 Am7 Bm7 Am7 (Repeat)

Be thou not unhappy; the tempest of sorrow shall pass;
regret will not last; disappointment will vanish... (X2)

Associate thou, as much as thou canst, with the relatives and strangers;
display thou loving kindness; show thou forth the utmost patience and resignation.

The more they oppose thee, shower thou upon them the greater justice and equity;

the more they show hatred and opposition toward thee,
challenge thou them with great truthfulness, friendship and reconciliation...(X2)

Be thou not unhappy; the tempest of sorrow shall pass;
regret will not last; disappointment will vanish...
