“The Power of the Covenant” by Nadia, Zaynab & Earl

April 16, 2019, 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, we’re in New York, USA with Nadia Affolter, Zaynab Affolter and Earl Henrikson who sing “The Power of the Covenant” based on a quotation by Abdu’l-Baha.

The music for this song was written by Dominic Lutley and the Youth of the TfP (Transformation for Peace) Junior Youth Camp at Townshend School in the Czech Republic.

This song was filmed and recorded in New York, USA, August 2018.

Lyrics & Quote

It is indubitably clear, that the pivot of the oneness of mankind is nothing else but the power of the Covenant […] The power of the Covenant is as the heat of the sun which quickeneth and promoteth the development of all created things on earth. The light of the Covenant, in like manner, is the educator of the minds, the spirits, the hearts and souls of men.

Abdu’l-Baha

Randomly bursting into song is a daily occurrence for Jordan, something which his friends find both hilarious and terrifying, however, for their own survival, they have grown accustomed to acts of randomness. Growing up in both the Czech Republic and Australia, and looking like he’s from neither, Jordan took to creating Youtube videos from a young age, the intention of his content is to make people happy and hopefully spread some positivity juice. He is now studying Media in Melbourne Australia, and singing for his classmates. (he really does not sing that much)
