“Unto Thee I Repair for Refuge” by Rosalynd & Pascal

September 14, 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, Rosalynd Koch & Pascal Schmidt sing “Unto Thee I Repair for Refuge”, from the Writings of the Bab.

This song was filmed and recorded in Essen, Germany, July 2016.

Lyrics & Quote

O Lord! Unto Thee I repair for refuge, and toward all Thy signs I set my heart.
O Lord! Whether traveling or at home, and in my occupation or in my work, I place my whole trust in Thee.
Grant me then Thy sufficing help so as to make me independent of all things, O Thou Who art unsurpassed in Thy mercy!
Bestow upon me my portion, O Lord, as Thou pleasest, and cause me to be satisfied with whatsoever Thou hast ordained for me.
Thine is the absolute authority to command.

The Bab

Chords

Unto Thee I repair for refuge, toward all Thy signs I set my heart. (x2)
O Lord! (x4)
Whether traveling or at home, in my occupation or in my work,
I place my whole trust in Thee. I place my whole trust in Thee.
Trust in Thee! O Lord! (x4)
Grant me then Thy sufficing help so as to make me independent, independent of all things.
Independent, independent of all things.
Unto Thee I repair for refuge, toward all Thy signs I set my heart. (x2)
O Lord! (x4)
Whether traveling or at home, in my occupation or in my work,
I place my whole trust in Thee. I place my whole trust in Thee.
Trust in Thee! O Lord! (x4)
