“Trust in God” by Shadi Kouchekzadeh

October 18, 2016, 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, Shadi Kouchekzadeh sings “Trust in God”, based on a prayer by Abdu’l-Baha. 

This song was filmed and recorded in Brisbane, Australia, February 2016.

Lyrics & Quote

Never lose thy trust in God. Be thou ever hopeful, for the bounties of God never cease to flow upon man. If viewed from one perspective they seem to decrease, but from another they are full and complete. Man is under all conditions immersed in a sea of God’s blessings. Therefore, be thou not hopeless under any circumstances, but rather be firm in thy hope.

Abdu’l-Baha
