“The Fire” by Denzil & Ephrim Aumua

August 2, 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, brothers Denzil and Ephrim Aumua sing “The Fire”, 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 & Quotes

O thou lamp who art enkindled with the fire of the Love of God!

Verily, I read thy recent letter which showed thy strong love, thy being ablaze with the fire of the love of thy Lord, the Mighty, the Praised, and the penetration of the Spirit of Truth in thy limbs, nerves, veins, arteries, bones, blood and flesh, until it hath taken the reins of power from thy hands and moveth thee as it willeth, causeth thee to speak in what it willeth and attracteth thee as it willeth. This is becoming of whatever heart is replenished with the spirit of the love of God. Thou shalt surely behold wondrous traces and shalt discover the signs of thy Mighty Lord.

Abdu’l-Baha

Ooooh, of Truth

Until the reins of power have been taken from thy hands and
Moveth thee as it willeth, causeth thee to speak in what it willeth
And attracteth thee as it willeth
This is becoming of whatever heart is replenished
With the spirit of the love of God thou shalt surely behold
Wondrous traces and shalt discover the signs
Of thy Mighty Lord
