“The Voice That Calls Me” by Noah & Vincent

April 29, 2020, 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 Chicago, USA with Noah Hamilton and Vincent Mann singing “The Voice That Calls Me”, based on an excerpt from ‘The Dawn-Breakers’.

This song was filmed and recorded in Chicago, USA, December, 2018.

Here is the quotation used for the lyrics followed by the chords below

In this quotation from The Dawn-Breakers, Sulayman, a follower of the Bab who had been captured and paraded down the streets with burning candles dug into his flesh, could be heard saying the following before he passed, addressing the flames as they ate into his wounds.

Lyrics & Quote

You have long lost your sting, O flames, and have been robbed of your power to pain me. Make haste, for from your very tongues of fire I can hear the voice that calls me to my Beloved!

Sulayman

Chords

Am, C, F

This is truly a brief heart wrenching account of a Babi martyr put into music. Thank you Naysan and Baha’i Blog.
