“Steadfast” by Asher Smith

July 26, 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 Santiago, Chile with Asher Smith singing “Steadfast” based on a prayer by Abdu’l-Baha.

This song was filmed and recorded in Santiago, Chile on 26 May, 2019 and was composed by Asher Smith.

Lyrics & Quote

O Lord my God! Assist Thy loved ones to be firm in Thy Faith, to walk in Thy ways, to be steadfast in Thy Cause. Give them Thy grace to withstand the onslaught of self and passion, to follow the light of divine guidance. Thou art the Powerful, the Gracious, the Self-Subsisting, the Bestower, the Compassionate, the Almighty, the All-Bountiful.

Abdu’l-Baha
