“Tender Herb” by Victoria Jane Leith

March 8, 2022, 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 Hluboka nad Vltavou, Czech Republic with Victoria Jane Leith singing “Tender Herb” based on the Writings of Baha’u’llah.

This song was filmed and recorded in Hluboka nad Vltavou, Czech Republic on 23 March 2021, and the music was composed by Victoria Jane Leith.

If it be Thy pleasure, make me to grow as a tender herb in the meadows of Thy grace, that the gentle winds of Thy will may stir me up and bend me into conformity with Thy pleasure, in such wise that my movement and my stillness may be wholly directed by Thee.
